The Los Angeles Times chatted with Neil Gaiman who said that the adaptation of The Graveyard Book which was in the works at Miramax, has fallen offtrack due to financing, but might turn up elsewhere. 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's next project is to write a screenplay for Anansi Boy, his first novel.
