One-Minute Writer - Movie

Today's One-Minute Writing Prompt:Movie

Write a one-minute synopsis of a movie you'd like to see, or like to make.

Of course, the movie I'm waiting on this summer is HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE, but since almost everyone on the planet knows about Harry, I decided not to write about this one.

However, I would love to see Neil Gaiman's THE GRAVEYARD BOOK turned into a movie. Boy is stalked by killer and escapes to a nearby graveyard. Boy's parents are killed, but the inhabitants of the graveyard rally around boy and raise him as their own. Boy lives happily in the graveyard until he is made to realize he needs to be among the land of the living. His time in the "happy" graveyard are coming to an end.

This movie could incorporate all kinds of cool special effects, makeup and cinemotography. It is all not too scary, considering the first words of the book are:
There was a hand in the darkness and it held a knife.

I'm really looking forward to this, even though one of my favorites, Jason Isaacs, is not in this one.
