Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book coming from Disney

Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed children’s fantasy novel The Graveyard Book will be turned into an animated feature by Disney. As The Graveyard Book is a take on The Jungle Book (where instead of a baby being raised by jungle animals, he’s raised by ghosts and named Nobody Owens.) It won the Newbery Award and a bunch of other stuff, because it’s good, not because it slept with John Newbery. That was a one night stand that happened after the award, so stop reporting on it, TMZ!

The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach director Henry Selick is attached, and he’ll begin production after his top-secret Pixar film is finished. The film is so top-secret I now have to murder you for reading about it. Sorry about that, let’s just make this quick…
