Neil Jordan Enters Gaiman’s “Graveyard”

Neil Jordan (“The Crying Game,” “The Company of Wolves,” “Interview with the Vampire”) is going to direct the live-action adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “The Graveyard Book”.

Appearing on The Today Show to promote “Coraline”, Gaiman revealed the director and added that UK FX house Framestore would be doing work on the film.

The hope is that some well known Brit actors would take roles in the Newbery Medal-winning story of the young boy Nobody Owens who is raised by ghosts in a cemetary.
