Disney to adapt "The Graveyard Book"

It has recently been announced that Disney, after a prolonged bidding war, has acquired the film rights to the "The Graveyard Book". The novel itself has been at a number of studios in the past few years, with talents like Neil Jordan and Chris Columbus failing to adapt it.

The novel, from famed "The Sandman" comic author Neil Gaiman, was first published in 2008 and went on tho win several literary awards, including the Hugo Award for Best Novel, the Newbery Medal, and the Locus Award for Best Young Adult Book, as well as the 2010 Carnegie Medal.

The book is is about a boy named Nobody Owens whose family is murdered when he is just a toddler. He is then raised by ghosts in a cemetery. When he becomes a teenager, his family’s killer returns, a being named 'The Man Jack', and pursues Nobody, for seemingly nefarious reasons.

Disney hasn't announced any details about filming specifics or release dates yet, though an announcement is expected soon. Gil Netter and Ben Browning are set to produce the film.
