Excellent news for fans of very good things: The Lumberjanes movie is going forward, with Emily Carmichael tapped to direct the film at Fox.
The involvement of Carmichael—whose name has been repeatedly floated as a potential helmer for Marvel’s Captain Marvel movie—in the adaptation of Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson, and Brooke Allen’s smash hit supernatural all-ages comic was first reported by The Wrap. The comic’s publisher, Boom! studios, confirmed it on Twitter:
The adventures at Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types have regularly been some of our favorite comics around in the last few years, so it’s nice to see that the movie is moving forward again. Hopefully we’ll start hearing more things soon.
