Disney Is Turning “The Graveyard Book” By Neil Gaiman Into A Movie
Disney will be turning bestselling children’s book “The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman into a movie. Henry Selick (“The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “James And The Giant Peach”) will direct the movie, but so far no screenwriter has been announced yet.
The book is about a young boy who is raised by ghosts in a graveyard when his family passes away. Here’s a description of “The Graveyard Book” from Amazon:
It takes a graveyard to raise a child. Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy—an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod’s family.
Are you glad Disney has decided to turn this book into a movie? And, do you think the movie should be live-action or animated?
