Neil Gaiman will direct the live-action version of his 'Death: The High Cost of Living' comic...that is if Guillermo del Toro has his way. From SCI FI Wire:
Guillermo del Toro, who is producing the film adaptation of Neil Gaiman's comic-book miniseries Death: The High Cost of Living, told SCI FI Wire that he believes Gaiman is the right choice to direct the film, even though he's never directed a full-length feature before.
"I think that if anyone knows that character, it's him," del Toro said in an interview on the set of his current directorial project, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, in Budapest last week. "And then, if we need to create a support structure, we will. I mean, there is without a doubt no one more qualified to tell that story than Neil Gaiman in my mind."
