“20th Century Fox has tapped Will Widger to write a live-action adaptation of “Lumberjanes,” the Boom! Studios comic about five young female friends who battle supernatural forces at summer camp,TheWrap has learned.
“Lumberjanes” was created by three women — Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis and Noelle Stevenson, while Brooke A. Allen serves as illustrator. The story follows a group of girls spending the summer at a scout camp, where they encounter strange creatures and other supernatural phenomena.
Originally planned as a limited eight-part series, the comic quickly became an ongoing series following strong sales and critical acclaim. “Lumberjanes” was recently nominated for two Eisner Awards including Best New Series, and the winners will be determined during Comic-Con in July…”
