Fotunately, the Milk Cover (GalleyCat)Johnny Depp, Edgar Wright, and Bret McKenzie have signed on to adapt Neil Gaiman’s middle grade novel, Fortunately the Milk. The collaborators intend to create a live-action/animation hybrid movie.

According to Digital Spy, Depp will serve as a producer and take on an acting role. Wright will take the helm as the director. McKenzie will write the script.

Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter: “Gaiman’s children’s book is described as ‘a story of time travel and breakfast cereal.’ It starts out with a father who goes to the store to buy some milk and returns with wild tales of aliens, space-time travel, pirates and more. The best-seller originally hit shelves Sept. 30, 2014, via HarperCollins.” (via MovieWeb)
