At some point I decided that the Bone movie is Mixnmojo-relevant on the basis of the Telltale games, and while my argument has a few holes in it, I figured you guys wouldn't pick today - which comes a solid two weeks since our last news post - to challenge me on this.
So last we heard, P.J. Hogan (known for the 2003's Peter Pan) was set to direct the animated film. That was Jan. 2012, after which we've heard nothing. Today, The Hollywood Reporter breaks the silence to reveal that there's a new director (the Kung Fu Panda guy) and a new script, which will be designed as the first installment in a trilogy.
Will this finally happen? Will it be good? I sure hope so. Few adaptations are more overdue than Bone. Mostly though I'm curious to find out how different/similar to the Telltale games the music and voicework will end up being. Say, maybe this is a good time for the studio to end that ten-year hiatus on their own Bone adaptation?
