BOOM! Studios breakout series “Lumberjanes” may soon be setting up camp on the big screen, with The Wrap reporting Friday that a film is in motion at 20th Century Fox, with writer Will Widger hired to pen the script.
“Lumberjanes,” set at a summer camp filled with supernatural occurrences, debuted in April 2014, the creation of Shannon Watters, Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis and Brooke Allen. The comic soon gained positive attention from the industry, attracting a dedicated fanbase due to its all-ages approach and female cast and creative team, plus critical acclaim including the No. 6 spot on CBR’s Top 100 Comics of 2014.
Widger landed notice in Hollywood for his screenplay “The Munchkin,” which landed him on the 2014 Black List, a survey of well-liked but unproduced scripts. “Lumberjanes” marks the latest extension of BOOM! Studios’ first-look film and TV deal with 20th Century Fox, and BOOM! execs Ross Richie, Stephen Christy and Adam Yoelin are on board as producers of the film.
