‘Bone’ gets a new director in P.J. Hogan


Bone. Good god I forgot there was an adaptation in the works! Hell, I forgot all about Bone the comic in general but thanks to the latest news of a new director and screenwriter we all get to remember the awesomeness that’s found in the Jeff Smith comic and hopefully movie.

…Back in Summer 2011, Smith revealed that he’d seen test footage from the first Bone movie, which could theoretically be the first in a trilogy of animated flicks based on 1,300 pages-worth of graphic novel material…
…Patrick Sean Smith (the creator of Greek) has been hired on to contribute to the Bone movie screenplay, presumably working from the earlier drafts penned by Justin Monjo (Farscape) and Aussie writer/director P.J. Hogan (Muriel’s Wedding, Peter Pan). More so, Hogan is now attached to direct the project, which will feature animation developed by the Australia-based Animal Logic (Happy Feet, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole)….

Sounds interesting. I loved the fantasy world of Bone in my youth and hearing this news brought back a lot of fond memories and not to mention anticipation. What gives? What’s taking so long? 4 years and now they have a director? I hope this sets things straight and gets this film in theaters A.S.A.P.!
