Ron Howard in Talks to Direct Disney's 'Graveyard Book'

THR Heat Vision:
The Graveyard Book is coming back to life.

Disney’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman's acclaimed 2008 kids novel was being developed as a stop-motion project to be directed by Henry Selick. It even had an October 2013 release date. But the project was put six feet under last summer when the studio and Selick parted ways over scheduling and development.

In a new twist, Graveyard now has been reconfigured as a live-action movie, and sources say Ron Howard is in negotiations to direct.

Gil Netter, a veteran producer with adaptations including Marley & Me and Life of Pi among his credits, is producing with Ben Browning. (Ben Browning, Cinema, Gil Netter, Ron Howard, The Graveyard Book)
