‘Hunger Games’ Director To Adapt Neil Gaiman’s ‘Neverwhere’ For TV

'Hunger Games' director to visit the world below London known as 'Neverwhere'.

It looks like Neil Gaiman’s ‘Neverwhere’ is to get a second bite at the television cherry.

Originally adapted for television in 1996 ‘Neverwhere’ centered on Richard Mayhew who is pulled into a mysterious world below the streets of London. Written by Gaiman and Lenny Henry. The mini series starred current ‘Doctor Who’ star Peter Capaldi. Gaiman later went on to write the novel.

Now it looks like ‘Hunger Games’ director Francis Lawrence is to have a go at adapting a fresh take on ‘Neverwhere’ for American television.

Deadline reports that Lawrence will direct and executive-produce the new TV adaptation.

You can check out a clip from the original ‘Neverwhere’ Mini series below.

    There was also a really wonderful BBC Radio 4 adaptation featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, Natalie Dormer, Christopher Lee, and Bernard Cribbins.
