The Graveyard Book Film is Dead... for Now

I found this feature on Neil Gaiman at the Los Angeles Times blog, Hero Complex.  Gaiman talks about how the film adaptation of his children's book, Newberry Medal and Hugo Award winner, The Graveyard Book, fell apart.  Apparently, this happened because Miramax shut down.  Gaiman talks about how the death of his father, David Gaiman, affected him for several months afterwards.  Gaiman also talks about his other Hollywood experiences.

I reviewed The Graveyard Book for the Comic Book Bin, and while I liked it, I consider it vastly overrated in the context of the fanfare the book has received since its release.  It is merely a rehash of The Jungle Book, an imaginative rehash, but a rehash, still.
