Warner Bros. Acquires Rights to ‘Bone’
Warner Bros. has plenty of comic book properties of their own to adapt, given that they own DC Comics, but apparently they want a few more. The studio has optioned the rights to adapt Jeff Smith’s Bone series of comics into a feature-length film.
Smith will serve as executive producer on the film, while Dan Lin, who has worked on such films as The Departed, TMNT, Alexander and 10,000 BC, will produce.
Whether or not the adaptation is live-action or animated will be determined by meetings between the filmmakers.
Previously, an adaptation of Bone was in development by Nickelodeon Films, but the project fell through due to the direction of the project and Smith’s desire to not exclusively aim the film at children.
