A new vision by Neil Gaiman...
Deadline reports that Joe Wright is planing to adapt the upcoming Neil Gaiman novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane for the big screen.
The project is set up at Focus Features with Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman producing the project through their banner Playtone.
The book is set for a June 18 release. Here is an official synopsis:
"It began for our narrator forty years ago, when the family lodger stole their car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. His only defense are three women on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duck pond is the ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang."
Wright previously directed Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, Hanna, and Anna Karenina.
