Adaptation of Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book now looks a distinct possibility
1492 Pictures and South Korean media company CJ Entertainment look set to produce an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s young-adult novel The Graveyard Book.
Under the working title of "Graveyard", the adaptation joins the development slate of the two companies, which combined forces in 2009 with the aim to create films for a global audience.
In The Graveyard Book the sole survivor of the attack, an 18-month-old baby, escapes his crib and his house, and toddles to a nearby graveyard. Quickly recognizing that the baby is orphaned, the graveyard’s ghostly residents adopt him, name him Nobody, and allow him to live in their tomb.
Neil Jordan is writing the script and will also direct the live-action movie, which is being produced by Wayfare Entertainment, Framestore and Gaiman.
