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.
Comixology and Cartoon Books have announced a 3-day half-off digital comics deal for one of the most critically acclaimed comic books of all time, Jeff Smith‘s Bone.
Hey digital comics lovers, you’ve heard of Bone, right? Well, if you have and you haven’t read it yet, I know that you’ve been meaning to read this epic comic for quite some time. How do I know that? Because I’m one of you. Sure, I’ve read some of it, but it’s been a very long time since I have and I barely remember what I read. So, this sale is for us. We can read the entire series for only 99 cents an issue and a per-collection price ranging from $3.99 to $5.99. Considering Bone‘s extensive length, I’d say that’s quite a deal.

During the Jeff Smith spotlight panel at C2E2 this past weekend, one of the questions asked to the creator was what the status on the Bone animated movie was. According to Smith, Warner Bros is working with a company called Animalogic and they have already done a 3D animation test and are continuing to move forward on the project. Animalogic has worked on other 3D films before, notably Happy Feet.
Smith was also asked whether he would prefer a Bone movie to be filmed in 3D or if he would have preferred a more traditional hand drawn 2D style, and while he admitted he would have preferred the 2D style, he understood that no one would front the money unless it was made in the more popular 3D computer-generated style.
