Neil Gaiman told the Los Angeles Times that the adaptation of “The Graveyard Book” is no longer in the works at Miramax, but may turn up elsewhere soon. The film was to be written and directed by Neil Jordan (The Brave One, The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire).
“It was all put together over at Miramax Films. The people there had a long, great relationship with Neil Jordan and it was all set up and ready to go, and then Miramax was more or less erased from existence,” Gaiman said. “It became a filing cabinet in somebody’s desk, more or less… But it looks like almost all the pieces are on the table again. They have a studio, they have a distributor and they are putting stuff together and I’m not allowed to say anything else.”
Gaiman next hopes to write a screenplay for “Anansi Boy,” his first novel.
