Ron Howard to Direct Graveyard Book Movie
Reprinted IGN.com by Jim Vejvoda
The Graveyard Book was planned as an animated movie to be helmed by Selick, but the project fell apart last year. “In a new twist, Graveyard now has been reconfigured as a live-action movie,” claims the trade.
Gaiman’s young-adult novel about a boy raised by the otherworldly denizens of a graveyard earned critical acclaim and numerous honors, including the 2009 Hugo and Nebula awards.
About the Book: Nobody Owens is an unusual boy. He was raised in a graveyard by ghosts and has learned the secrets they keep, like the ability to fade and dream walk. And he’ll need all of those skills to face what is waiting for him on the outside.
This book trailer, narrated by Neil Gaiman with illustrations from the book by Dave McKean, will give you a taste of Gaiman’s new novel, The Graveyard Book, available in stores now.
