As you're working on the scene adaptation of Good Omens, how has it been re-writing Terry Pratchett's (RIP) parts? Also, do you have plans to turn any more of your books into movies/shows? The Graveyard Book would make an excellent kids movie if done similar to Coroline.
I spent a lot of time during the writing of Good Omens the novel, about 28 years ago, rewriting Terry’s bits, just as he spent time rewriting, footnoting, or doing stuff to my bits. There’s not a lot in the book that doesn’t already taste like both of us. So it didn’t really matter who had originally written the bit I was adapting, it was a matter of how to make the pages in front of me something that would work on screen.
(Even the bits that aren’t in the book, that are in the TV show have their roots in conversations and ideas and things Terry and I had planned for the sequel and for the movie adaptation we were meant to do in 1991. Although you won’t see the halos-used-as-lethal-frisbees sequence Terry always wanted to set in the British Museum…)
Disney have the rights to The Graveyard Book as a movie. I hope they make it into something wonderful.
