Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book has been in development since 2008. Ron Howard is currently in talks to direct, and if he agrees, the novel might finally get the big screen adaptation it deserves.

Howard is looking to direct The Graveyard Book for Disney. The film is inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s 1894 classic The Jungle Book.

Gaiman’s novel tells the story of an unusual boy named Bod, who inhabits an unusual place-he’s the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians’ time as well as their timely ghostly teachings-like the ability to Fade. Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead? And then there are things like ghouls that aren’t really one thing or the other. »
