Emily Carmichael Joins Lumberjanes… to Direct

Lumberjanes_022_B_VariantExpect this one to be the next big in comics to film. It’s been announced that Emily Carmichael will be directing the big screen adaptation of Lumberjanes, the award winning comic book series.

The comic created by Shannon Waters, Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, and Brooke A. Allen has been in the movie development stages for a while now with an announcement that it’d come to the big screen in May 2015.

The series has beloved and praised having won an Eisner and nominated for a GLAAD Media AWard. The comic is published by BOOM! Studios under their BOOM! Box imprint and movie is being produced by 20th Century Fox. BOOM! has a first-look deal set up with Fox.

The comic is about Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley, five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together… and they’re not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way!

Think of a more supernatural bent Goonies, but with five kick-ass girls taking the lead.
