P.J. Hogan To Direct Jeff Smith's Bone

The comic fantasy series followed three cousins from the Bone family who are small, white and bald human-like creatures with big noses.

Almost four years since the film was first announced, Warner Bros. have finally found a director to bring Jeff Smith's indie comic book Bone to the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter say P.J. Hogan (Confessions of a Shopaholic, My Best Friend's Wedding) will helm based on a script by Patrick Sean Smith (creator of ABC's family show Greek). The comic fantasy series followed three cousins from the Bone family who are small, white and bald human-like 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 find out that the valley is threatened by an evil force called the Lord of the Locusts. Issues were released irregularly between 1991 and 2004. Although clearly an animated approach would work best, it is not yet known how Warner Bros or Hogan plan to tackle the property so live-action or a CGI/live action hybrid are still possibilities. Though the film will be produced by Dan Lin and Animal Logic, the animation team behind Happy Feet 2 and Legends of the Guardians so you gotta figure at least some animation is on the cards.
