[Movies] Ron Howard In Talks To Direct Adaptation Of Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.22.2013

Ron Howard is in talks to direct an adaptation of The Graveyard Book for Disney, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The adaptation of Gaiman's 2008 novel was originally conceived as a stop-motion project, directed by Henry Selick. It even had a release date of October 2013. It was canceled last summer when Disney and Selick split over scheduling and development. It is now being planned as a live-action movie.

Producer Gil Netter (Marley & Me, Life of Pi) will produce with Ben Browning. The book follows a boy named Nobody Owens who is raised by ghosts in a cemetery after his family is murdered. When he is a teenager, he is chased by the family's killer, who is called "the Man Jack". It won the Carnegie and Newbery medals for best children's book. It's the only time one book won both awards.

Howard will also oversee writing for a new script, and his production company Imagine Entertainment (with Brian Grazer) may handle production. Howard is currently finishing work on Rush, a racing biopic which stars Chris Hemsworth. It will be released through Universal on September 20.
