Edward Gorey

I’d love to see an animated Gorey film, but it’s still neat to think that one of his tales is headed for the silver screen:

Gorey tale coming to screen for first time

“The world of Edward Gorey is coming to the big screen for the first time with a live-action feature based on the illustrator-writer’s classic tale “The Doubtful Guest.”

The project is being developed by Walden Media, the firm behind the “Narnia” franchise, Fox 2000 and the Jim Henson Co. Brad Peyton (“Evelyn: The Cutest Evil Dead Girl”) will direct from a script written by Matthew Huffman.

Originally published in 1957, the whimsical story revolves around a quirky family whose life is turned upside down when a mysterious, mischievous creature arrives unannounced and unwelcome, bringing trouble with him and wreaking havoc.”
