There hasn’t been a decision yet on whether the feature will be animated or live-action.
Dan Lin, founder of Lin Pictures and former senior vice president of production for Warner Bros., will produce the movie. Smith will serve as executive producer.
Previously, an animated version was in development through Nickelodeon Pictures. However, that fell through because of disagreements between Smith and the studio.
Bone was self-published through Smith’s Cartoon Books between 1991 and 2004. In 2005, Scholastic began releasing color versions of the original collections. The Scholastic editions have sold more than 1 million copies.
