Warner Bros. picks up Bone

The rights to Jeff Smith's creator-owned series, Bone, has recently been picked up by Warner Bros.

No word yet on whether they plan to make it a live-action film or completely animated, but Jeff is staying in an executive producer role so hopefully we'll get a product that will appease fans of the comic as well as bring in new readers to the fold.

Originally Nickelodeon was developing an animated version, but that didn't work out.
They were trying to aim it towards kids and include pop songs into the stories, which was not the direction Smith wanted the franchise to go in.

Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing what Warner Bros. is going to do.

I think this will be a great opportunity for Bone to get onto the big screen and available to a wider audience.

Cool! I've never read "Bone" so this is as good an excuse as any to remedy that and pick up a collection or two.

As long as Jim Carrey and Mike Myers stay far, far away from the movie...
