EMILY THE STRANGE
According to Variety (subscription required), Fox Animation has tapped Matthew Weiss to write “Emily the Strange,” based on the sullen teenage character created by Rob Reger. The film will be mainly live-action with some animation elements. The property, with a quarterly comic out from Dark Horse, started out as promotional stickers and now has made it big.
Fueling the fires of speculation, the official site has launched a villain gallery to show who might be considered for the next film. Which, of course, assumes we’ll forget Kirsten Dunst spilling the beans last week.
