Joe Wright Will Direct Neil Gaiman's THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE Next
Deadline reports that director Joe Wright's (Hanna, Anna Karenia) next film will be based on the upcoming Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Stardust, Sandman) novel The Ocean At The End of The Lane.
The narrator describes a tale that begins when he was seven and a lodger stole the family’s car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Creatures from beyond the world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and a menace unleashed — within his family, and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it. His only defense is three women, on a ramshackle farm at the end of the lane.
