Death of Neil Gaiman
Sci-Fi Wire reports that Young actor Shia La Beouf is working with writer Neil Gainman to bring his character Death to the big screen. If given the chance I'll be asking Neil about this project when he's here in Victoria next month at the Alix Goolden Hall.
"Me and Neil Gaiman are working on Death right now," LaBeouf said in an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival. "We're trying to turn that into a film. Neil is the guy who wrote Sandman. And Death was one of his graphic novels that we're trying to make." LaBeouf and Gaiman have brought the project to New Line Cinema and are awaiting a green light.
LaBeouf said that he picks his movies carefully and enjoys SF movies, such as I, Robot, in which he co-starred with Will Smith.
My prediction is that this project will get what all projects receive, they get a lifetime.
