elfquest.jpgWendy and Richard Pini have teamed up with Warner Bros. to bring their long running indie comic Elfquest to the silver screen.  The film will be written by Rawson Thurber, who will also direct and produce.

The original comic, which the Pinis initially self-published starting in 1978, followed a tribe of elves known as the Wolfriders in their attempts to survive and link with other dispersed elves on an Earth-like planet with two moons while on the lookout for tribes of humans and trolls, both of which acted as allies and enemies.

There have been multiple attampts to make the series a movie in the past and all have fallen through.  Interestingly, no format has been determined yet, meaning this could be live action, 3D CG, or 2D animated.

    Yawn… yet another “ooh, we’ve got it in the works, sit tight” blurb. Have I mentioned this is coming to you from 2011, and this ancient bit of hoo-rah is the first I’ve heard of this particular nonevent?

    For the love of all that’s holy, just *shut up* with these coy titillations… it got a bit old after the first decade. I’d give at least one limb to see the elves on the big screen, but for whatever reason it never pans out. Very Harold Camping of you. Now please, pretty please, with beesweets on top, STFU.

    Good to hear that there is really another fan of Elfquest. Heard bout the deal with Marvel over 8 years ago, but still no movie.
