Disney had originally conceived a feature adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book as a stop-motion animation directed by Henry Selick (Nightmare Before Christmas.) The project, which was looking to an October release, fell apart and it looked like the project was DOA. But now it looks like Disney has reworked the project to be a live-action feature, and Ron Howard is in talks to direct.
The Graveyard Book is about a boy who is raised by ghosts after his parents are murdered. Years later, the murderer - of perhaps unearthly origins - returns to finish the job. Naturally, this is a children's book.
