Disney Picks Up Neil Gaiman's 'The Graveyard Book'


Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book is on its way to the big screen - for real this time. UK effects house Framework and Wayfare had the option on the property for the longest time, but the project never went anywhere. So Disney came in and did what Disney does best: spend money. More after the jump.

Ben Browning from Wayfare will still be on to produce, but it sounds like Framework is no longer involved. Whatever - Disney has made The Graveyard Book a priority, finally learning from their mistake of ignoring The Nightmare Before Christmas for nearly a decade.

The Graveyard Book is Gaiman's take on Kipling's The Jungle Book (another property which Disney made huge money on). But in typical Gaiman fashion, the story revolves around a boy whose family was murdered, and ghosts in a graveyard raise him.
