IGN reports that a movie based on Jeff Smith’s cult classic comic series Bone is in the works, and now has someone on board to pen the script, so the project seems to be moving forward.
This isn’t the first time a Bone movie was attempted. Nickelodeon was in talks to do a movie in 2000, but creative differences between them and creator Jeff Smith ended the project before too long. (That and Nickelodeon wanted the characters to be voiced be child actors and feature pop songs of the time…no thank you, late 90s pop.) So now the movie rights have been passed to Warner Brothers, and it looks like things are going to go through this time. So with that said, Warner Brothers…please….PLEASE don’t screw this up.
