Neil Gaiman's latest book is so good it's already being turned into a film, and it's not even out yet. Together with illustrator Lorenzo Mattotti, Gaiman has turned the fairy tale classic Hansel and Gretel into a graphic novel, and now Hollywood is turning that into a movie.

Variety is reporting that producer Juliet Blake from the The Hundred-Foot Journey has purchased the rights to Gaiman's latest book, and she has plans to adapt it into a live-action film. I know what you're all thinking,; the last Hansel and Gretel movie (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) was sheer cinematic perfection, and you're right. But let's give Gaiman's work a try — not all movies can have two beautiful semi-well known actors in leather blowing up witch heads over and over again.

Hansel & Gretel (the graphic novel) will be released on October 28th.

Nice job heading off my very first thought at the pass there. "But it's not like they can top Witch Hunters!"

Neil Gaiman's latest book is so good it's already being turned into a film, and it's not even out yet.

This kind of thing always makes me feel vaguely uncomfortable. "We've sold the movie rights to a comic that isn't released!" and whatnot.
