Edward Gorey Movies
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the work of everyone’s favorite creepy cartoonist, Edward Gorey, will be made into a movie. The project is being developed by Walden Media (the people who brought you the Narnia movie), the Jim Henson Company, and Fox 3000.
Brad Peyton will direct from a script written by Matthew Huffman.
It’s hard to come up with a creature that you’ve never seen before in any medium, and he’s a unique little creation who is very appealing without being cute or cloying," Jim Henson Co. co-CEO Lisa Henson said. "He’s sophisticated yet simple at the same time, but it’s not overly juvenile. Adults can find him cute, too."
No word yet on a cast, or if the film will be live action or animated.
