Lin talks Bone

I’m not going to claim to know a whole lot about Bone, only that when I started writing this post and saw him I went, “Oh right, that thing.” But after reading the entire Wikipedia page, I’m still not quite sure what Bone is all about.

The character is from Jeff Smith’s cartoon series, and SHERLOCK HOLMES producer, Dan Lin, recently talked to Collider about how the feature film adaptation of the little white…thing, is going.

"It really looks like a mix of Shrek as far as the three Bone characters and their comedy, their Looney Tunes of Marx Brothers comedy set in a Lord of the Rings world," said Lin. "I mean, the best way tonally again is Shrek meets Lord of the Rings. Very fantastical but between the Bone characters just a lot of comedy."

"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," said Lin. "I'm thinking in first quarter of next year you'll hear who's the director of Bone and that'll give you a sense of where we're going."

He says they’re aiming for a PG or PG-13 rating, but if I was a betting man, I’d pick the one more likely to double their profits. Any big Bone fans out there excited for this? Any Bone fans out there period?

Extra Tidbit: Linís also working on a live-action/animation hybrid of TOM AND JERRY.

Bone is one of the best comics there's ever been. A true magnum opus, and one which would make a monumental movie if handled correctly. I'm not entirely confident that that will happen, though. Still, it's good to hear that Jeff Smith is allegedly so actively involved. Though any mention of Shrek bothers me. Eh, we'll see, I guess...

Too big a story

You should check the comic if you can its a good read saying that, I'm a fan of the comic but have no idea how they would fit the whole story in one 90 minute film.

Bone is a great story! You really should give it a shot! One of the best comics around! I just don't know if Shrek meets Lord of the Rings comparison does that any justice. It definitely is an original story and it's very epic in feel. Like I said, you should read it yourself! I was surprised by it! As for the movie, well...
I'm not all excited unless they decide to make this into an 2D animated feature as that is what the material feels more closer to representing Bone's characters and

I'm not all excited unless they decide to make this into an 2D animated feature as that is what the material feels more closer to representing Bone's characters and world. Due to the size of the story, it'd have to be seperated into I suppose a 'trilogy.' It's a tough call. I'm sure it will appeal to a lot of people as it's very accessable.

It's nice to see this project moving along. It seems like it's been talked about forever.
And I agree with DeadAce, Go pick up the complete series already!

Bone is awesome, if you haven't read it, you're missing out! Probably my fave comic ever!
I know Bone as a movie has been floating around hollywood for ages, and I know Jeff Smith is very critical in how it's handled! So, hopefully this will get made, with the respect it deserves!
