Based on Jeff Smith‘s acclaimed fantasy comic, the Muriel’s Wedding director has signed on to helm the long-awaited adaptation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The comic, which ran from 1991 to 2004, followed the adventures of three cousins from the Bone family who leave their sheltered home and find themselves embroiled in an epic battle against the Lord of Locusts.
Bone‘s movie adaptation was first announced by Warner Bros almost four years ago.
The format the film will take remains unclear, whether live-action, CG or a combination of the two.
Hogan’s previous films include My Best Friend’s Wedding and Confessions of a Shopaholic.
Smith’s RASL has also been optioned by Warner.
