Breaking News - the Graveyard Book film

I just received a mail from Simon Dyda letting me know that he had come across an announcement (on Twitter) by Neil Gaiman that Neil Jordan will be writing and directing the film adaptation of The Graveyard Book. All I can say is… the Graveyard Book… Neil Gaiman… Neil Jordan… I am salivating at the prospect.

I just wonder who Stephen Rae will play?

That's awesome news - I'm reading the book right now and I have often thought "This would make a great movie."

Hi Suzanne - I think so too, given the almost episodic nature (and supernatural fantasy) Company of Wolves springs to mind as a Neil Jordan related comparator
