“Best-selling author Neil Gaiman announced that DreamWorks Animation has optioned the film rights for his upcoming novel Interworld.

Gaiman said that in 1996 he began working with Michael Reaves on the idea for a story “about a boy who finds himself in the middle of a war between two equally powerful forces, who joins a super-team consisting of versions of himself from different alternate realities to try and maintain the cosmic balance.” Soon after, the idea was pitched to DreamWorks and other studios, but was turned down. “
