Patrick Sean Smith To Adapt Jeff Smith Comic ‘Bone’ For Warner Bros.; P.J. Hogan Directing
  |  @   |  

Back in 2008, Warner Brothers secured the rights to turn the popular Jeff Smith comic book, Bone, into a movie. Now things are beginning to move forward with the news that Patrick Sean Smith has been hired to write the adaptation, and P.J. Hogan has been hired to direct.

Smith is the creator of the ABC Family series Greek, and also acted as a writer and producer on it. He’s also written episodes of Everwood and Supernatural. Hogan directed Muriel’s Wedding, My Best Friend’s Wedding, and Confessions of a Shopaholic, as well as wrote and directed the 2003 live-action Peter Pan.

Bone tells the story of three small, hairless humanoid cousins called the Bone cousins. After getting kicked out of their home, they eventually find themselves in a mysterious place called the Valley, where they meet a girl named Thorn and her grandmother, Rose. They soon discover the threat of the evil Lord of the Locusts, and find themselves on a journey to defeat the being and become heroes.

The comics ran from 1991 to 2004, but have recently found a new surge of popularity after Scholastic Books re-released them as trade paperbacks.
