Neil Gaiman’s THE GRAVEYARD BOOK Will Be Made Into A Movie
1492 Pictures and South Korean media group CJ Entertainment are teaming up to produce a feature film adaptation of “The Graveyard Book” according to The Hollywood Reporter Blog. The novel is a young-adult centered book written by Neil Gaiman that won the Newberry Medal.
The two companies joined forces in 2009 with the goal of creating films that would attract audiences across the globe. Neil Jordan has been hired to write the script and direct the feature film about a boy who is raised in a graveyard and educated by ghosts.
Financing for the film has been a problem in the past, but with 1492 Pictures and CJ Entertainment coming on board the project finally has steady financing to rely upon. CJ Entertainment will distribute the film in Korea and Japan. Wayfare Entertainment, Framestore and Gaiman will also have a hand in the production of the project along with 1492 and CJ.
