Jeff Smith’s Bone comic to be 3 picture CGI adaption

Comic Book Resources have some excellent news for fans of the brilliant comic book, Bone.
Author and artist, Jeff Smith was talking at Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. He said that he is “very happy” with the progress on the project so far and added that Warner Brothers would “probably end up making three films” in order to complete the “Bone” storyline.
Smith also spoke about his previous attempts to bring “Bone” to the big screen as a hand-drawn animated film. Smith noted that even though he had several of his friends in the animation industry onboard to help him, the project was unable to get made.
“It was just too big, too expensive,” Smith said. “I ended up just spending my time trying to get everyone to get along with everyone else.”
“I was kind of doing a love letter to Carl Barks and Walt Kelly,” Smith related to the crowd. “And talking in that language, I was hoping other cartoon heads would dig it. It really is the story I wanted to read when I was nine.”
Bone is simply brilliant. I highly recommend you pick it up. At first you think it is just a simple little tale of lost little creatures, but it builds and builds to an epic adventure with gorgeous art and memorable characters. To capture the whole thing then a trilogy is the way to go.
What do you think about Bone becoming a movie trilogy?
