Author Neil Gaiman has told MTV that he is set to polish his earlier draft for the project with "Hard Candy" director David Slade at helm.
First it was a TV miniseries, then got turned into a novel and now, will finally go into the big screen for sure.
Yes, soon there really will come "Neverwhere" in theaters for either fans of the series or book to enjoy, author Neil Gaiman has confirmed to MTV. Project actually had been developed at Jim Henson Company in the past years, but seemed to get lost in the process until now.
"They’re using my script from 2000, and they want me to polish it up a bit," so he revealed, referring to the earlier draft he wrote for the studio.
As for the helmer, it is learned from Gaiman that David Slade, known for his last year's effort "Hard Candy", has already been assigned to direct with Harvey Weinstein to possibly handle the distribution matters via The Weinstein Company.
The original version, aired by BBC Two in 1996, tells about Richard Mayhew, an average Londoner, who unexpectedly finds himself end up in an alternate dimension world called London Below after helping an injured girl named Door recover in his flat. There he must help her looking for answers regarding the murder of her family members.
