Neil Gaiman is readying yet another one of his novels for the silver screen. According to MTV Splash Page, Neil Gaiman revealed that his latest novel, The Graveyard Book, is set for a feature film adaptation.
While there was interest from the Hollywood system in adapting his novel, Gaiman is going his own route here, handing the project over to the U.K.-based special effects firm, Framestore, who, according to Gaiman, are the, "best known as the leading special effects house in the U.K."
"They want to start making films, and start producing their own films," Gaiman said. "And they read it, and they loved it, and I spoke to them, and they said all the right things, and they seem to listen. So I don't think it's going to be transported to a graveyard in Los Angeles where they've been burying bathing beauties or anything. I think we're actual going to stick with where the book is written and film that. And I think part of the idea is that they know they can also do the special effects cheaply."
Gaiman will be on board as a producer of the film. Some of Framestore's work can be seen in Harvey Dent's Two-Face transformation in The Dark Knight. No production schedule was released for the film.
