Rumors flew on Friday when it was leaked that 21st Century Fox had optioned the fan favorite comic LumberJanes for a live action film. We are happy to announce that BOOM! has confirmed this news. 20th Century Fox has optioned the rights to the comic. The original creators are excited.
“The entire team is excited for the opportunity to expose the comic to a wider audience and legions of young hardcore lady-types everywhere,” said Watters, Ellis, Stevenson, and Allen in a joint statement.
Noelle Stevenson also added, “Read our book! They’re making a movie so it’s probably good, right?” For those who haven’t picked up LumberJanes, the series focuses on 5 “rad, butt-kicking best pals” working to have an awesome summer. Sure there’s a magical quest and supernatural creatures trying to stop it, but they won’t let it ruin this summer. No word yet on a start date for production.
