Neil Gaiman's THE GRAVEYARD BOOK is fantastic - a scary kids' story that really brings the emotion and is full of great characters, both living and dead. It would make a great movie - honestly, I'm surprised Pixar wasn't all over this book.
And they may be yet in some fashion - according to Deadline, Disney has bought the rights to the novel, and has attached THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS's Henry Selick to direct the movie. Selick has the perfect sensibilities for the story, and so far, this sounds like it's going to work splendidly.
One little caveat though - although I'm sure it will likely be stop-motion (although the article doesn't indicate if it will be) I'd love for this to be live-action. Selick's last live-action movie, MONKEYBONE, wasn't so great, but with this source material and Neil Gaiman and Selick's vision, this could really be something special.
Selick will make THE GRAVEYARD BOOK (or will it be THE GRAVEYARD MOVIE?) once he finishes a top-secret project for Pixar. What that project is no one is saying, but Selick is a remarkable visionary and I'm sure whatever he's doing with Pixar will be visually amazing at the very least.
