Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Jeff Smith’s cult comic Bone gained new momentum today with the hiring of a writer and director. THR reports that Patrick Sean Smith, best known as the creator of Fox Family Channel’s Greek, will pen a new script, while Australia’s P.J. Hogan (no relation to Australia’s favorite son, Paul “Crocodile Dundee” Hogan) will direct. THR summarizes the source material thusly:
The filmmakers’ plan calls for shooting the film in Australia, in partnership with the animation company Animal Logic, which has somehow managed to stay afloat after producing Happy Feet 2 and Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.
