Here’s an interesting bit of news via Collider in which Sherlock Holmes producer Dan Lin mentions a multi-part Bone movie based on Jeff Smith’s work.

Lin said Justin Monjo is writing the script and they already did a test with Animalogic (who did Happy Feet and Guardians of Ga’Hoole). He went on to say “it really looks like a mix of Shrek as far as the three Bone characters and their comedy, their Looney Tunes or Marx Brothers comedy set in a Lord of the Rings world. We’ve met with several directors and we hope to come to a director decision by January and Jeff Smith has been very intricately involved in the development process with us.”

This might be a surprise to many Jeff Smith fans, as the creator has stated before he had no desire to see Bone turned into a film.  However, Lin died say that Smith is “very intricately involved in the development process”, and that a director may be named as early as January 2010.

Having made it almost all the way through the giant Bone collected edition, I can’t wait to see how Lin will bring the look and style to the big screen.

    I hope that once you finish reading that giant Bone one volume edition that you will have a Bone-centric episode of the podcast.
