Neil Gaiman’s “Graveyard” Is Still Fresh

Neil Gaiman says the film adaptation of his “The Graveyard Book” is still on the cards, albeit with a different distributor and director.

The “Stardust” and “Sandman” author tells The Los Angeles Times that “It was all put together over at Miramax Films. The people there had a long, great relationship with Neil Jordan and it was all set up and ready to go, and then Miramax was more or less erased from existence.”

He continued saying “it became a filing cabinet in somebody’s desk, more or less… But it looks like almost all the pieces are on the table again. They have a studio, they have a distributor and they are putting stuff together and I’m not allowed to say anything else.”

Is Neil Jordan (“The Crying Game, ” “Interview with the Vampire”) still attached? Hard to say. Gaiman is also at work on a screenplay for his novel “Anansi Boy”.
