Your 2014 Reading Guide: 14 Great Books About To Become Movies
The Graveyard Book By Neil GaimanStatus: Has been in development since 2009.
Who's Involved: The filmís been in development for a while, but last year, we got word that the project would switch from animation to live action. Ron Howard is currently circling as a likely director.
Why you should read the book first: Gaimanís premises are often original, and The Graveyard Book is no exception. The story is one of ghosts and orphans, friendships, monsters and moral choices and thereís little doubt that Gaimanís most important concepts will come across on the big screen. Still, like most mythology and monster-laden fantasies, thereís also little doubt that many of the lovely details that make the book so special will need to be condensed. If you can get your hands on the Hugo, Newbery, and Carnegie winner, we highly suggest you add this instant classic to your reading list.
