The Nightmare Before Christmas director Henry Selick was working on a stop-motion version of The Graveyard Book for Disney last year, but the project was canceled. It seemed like that was the last we’d hear about the project, but Ron Howard is interested in directing an adaptation of his own.
Heat Vision reports that Ron Howard is in negotiations to direct a live-action version of The Graveyard Book for Disney. From the initial report, it does not appear that Howard will be using any of what was created for Henry Selick’s version. It’s said that Ron Howard will oversee the writing of a new script and may come on board as a producer with Brian Grazer.
