If you hadn't heard, Disney has been developing a film adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book (which in turn is a re-imaginging of The Jungle Book) for quite some time now. After Henry Selick and Disney parted ways not too long ago, Disney has been looking for someone to take over the project. So now, moving away from Selick's love of stop-motion film (Who directed Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach,and Coraline), Disney has hired Ron Howard to oversee and eventually direct a live-action version of the film instead.
