Neil Gaiman To Direct A New Short Film

Neil Gaiman will once again turn his talents to cinema as he begins production on a 10 minute silent short film, writing on his blog:
Very quick one just to say I'm in the offices of a film company in London, spending two days interviewing editors, production designers, costume people and the like, for a short (ten minute) silent film I've written and will be directing in two weeks' time.

I can't tell you much more about it yet. It stars, er, a star, and another, different, star. I had the idea for it half way through the HousingWorks benefit Amanda and I did in April [Edit: er, June. April was PEN.], and pulled out my notebook and wrote it down.

It got the green light on Friday, will be part of a series of Silent Films broadcast in the UK in December, and I have probably already said too much.
This will be his second short, the first been the documentary 'A Short Film About John Bolton.'
