The Graveyard Book - Another Neil Gaiman book heading for the big screen

Neil Jordan (Interview with a Vampire, A Company of Wolves) is down to direct a screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. All things Gaiman are hot right now with Coraline being splashed all over the web.

I picked up The Graveyard Book for my Wife for Christmas. I've not read it yet, but by all accounts it is meant to be excellent.

Shocktillyoudrop had the story.

It was reported in October that Framestore, a UK-based FX house, picked up the rights to the story. Gaiman, out promoting Coraline, told The Today Show today about Jordan's involvement.

"The Graveyard Book" focuses on the life of Nobody Owens, a boy raised by the dead in a cemetery. It was published by Harper Collins and released last year. Jordan was once attached to direct an adaptation of Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box, but he backed out last summer.
