The creator of ABC Family’s “Greek” is interested in adapting Jeff Smith’s popular indie comic book “Bone” for Warner Bros.
According to THR, Patrick Sean Smith is set to write an adaptation of the comic with P.J. Hogan attached to direct. The fantasy is being produced by Dan Lin of Lin Pictures and Animal Logic, after Warners picked up the rights in 2008.
The cult classic follows “three cousins from the Bone family, small, bald and humanlike creatures with big noses. The trio are run out of their hometown and find themselves in a mysterious valley where they are separated and hunted by other creatures. They are taken in by a girl named Thorn and her grandmother, and they find out that the valley is threatened by an evil force called the Lord of the Locusts.”
Originally published by Smith from 1991 to 2004, Bone found new life after being republished by Scholastic in graphic novel format.
