BONE Adaptation Set Up At Warner Bros.

The LA Times has an interview with author Jeff Smith and it seems the long gestating film adaptation of his comic series Bone is finally gaining some steam over at Warner Brothers.

The highly regarded comic follows the three Bone cousins as they get kicked out of their town and end up in a unknown Black Forest fairy tale.

A number of film versions of the comic have been in and out of development over the past ten years, but no studio has gotten the adaptation right according to Smith.


At one time the project was set up at both Paramount and Nickelodeon, but in the last few years Warner Bros. has had two scripts written and turned down. Currently the studio has a third script in the works and Smith says from this current script three separate, computer animated, 3-D films should come out of it.

Smith stated he was, “actually excited about the movie for the first time in a long time” after watching a four minute Bone short recently made by Warner Bros.

Smith went on to say about the short: “Fone Bone was falling in the water and going through cliffs and canyons. The dragon moved in from off camera in the shadows with smoke around him, all in 3-D. It was pretty mind blowing.”

Smith also said the first movie version of Bone would not be done for another two years.

We hold our breath in anticipation!
