Official Press Release
Los Angeles - Director Jim Fall (Lizzy McGuire) and screenwriter/novelist Pamela Ribon (Why Girls Are Weird) have been attached to develop a feature film based on the Komikwerks property Henrietta Hex for producer Lauren Kisilevsky at Blue Star Pictures. Prolific animation and comic book veteran Shannon Denton created Henrietta Hex, which tells the tale of a teenage girl, the twelve-year-old boy she's supposed to be babysitting, and a teenage ghost. These junior paranormal investigators are constantly saving the cursed town of Spooks Hollow from the evil spirits who would do it harm.
"I'm terribly excited about the team we've got on board. They get this character and have gone to great lengths to remain true to the youthful feel I intended for this project," says creator Shannon Denton.
Blue Star Pictures is spearheading efforts to ensure the development of Henrietta Hex for both feature and television, in hopes they can kick-start a new franchise.
Pamela Ribon is represented by the Gersh Agency. Shannon Denton is co-represented by Circle of Confusion and the Gersh Agency.
