Everything we know about the graveyard book

the graveyard book

the graveyard book will be an adaptation of Gaiman’s 2008 young adult novel, which follows the adventures of newly orphaned Nobody “Bod” Owens after he is adopted by a group of otherworldly creatures in a graveyard. Gaiman, who insisted that The Sandman needed to be a broadcast show, has expressed acceptance with the idea that the graveyard book It will be a singular movie, but it may not be the wisest decision. Given that the book follows Bod through a decade of his life, film can be a difficult medium to adapt the project as there are so many stories that can be told.

Henry Selick (the nightmare before christmas) originally intended to direct the project, but production problems caused Selick to leave the film, along with a successive series of writers who would sign on and then leave shortly afterward, leaving it in utter limbo. While there seems to be some disappointment for Gaiman, it may be a good thing he wasn’t able to get involved. Gaiman may be too busy to be fully tied to the graveyard bookespecially since you are interested in creating a Sandman spin-off about Johanna Constantine. With more episodes of The Sandman Y good omens season 2 on the way, Gaiman will be busy enough without having a movie on his plate.

The next iteration of the graveyard book will be written by David Magee (the life of Pi) and directed by Marc Foster (Finding Neverland), but it remains to be seen if the project is ever completed. There are currently no updates on when the producers will start looking for a cast, which would be a major step in their production. Still, it’s not too uncommon for a Gaiman-inspired project to struggle to make it through development, especially after the struggle Gaiman went through to get more episodes of it. The Sandman Netflix approved. Hopefully, the graveyard book it will have a smoother development process from here on out.
