Ron Howard is in talks to direct Disney’s “Graveyard Book”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The “Rush” director would bring to the screen a beloved tale written by famed novelist Neil Gaiman. Henry Selick, of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” fame, was originally attached to direct a feature film version of the kids’ novel – and in his trademark stop-motion – but that incarnation fell through.

The book tells of a boy named Nobody Owens who is raised by ghosts in a cemetery after his family is murdered. When he is a teen, he is pursued again by his family’s killer, a being called “the Man Jack.”

Howard’s film, a live-actioner, will have Gil Netter (“Marley & Me”) serving as producer.

The filmmaker’s next flick is race-car flick “Rush”, starring Chris Hemsworth.
