The end is near for the #RoadtoSanDiego, but just when I thought things couldn't get more exciting, I discovered BOOM! Studios ninth announcement. David Petersen's hit series Mouse Guard from Archaia is becoming a movie! This may be the most exciting news yet, well at least it is for the fangirl inside of me. I adore the series, and it looks like it's going to be getting the same treatment that the recent Jungle Book movie did this year. Complete CG treatment from Matt Reeves and Gary Whitta.
Here's a bit more detail:
"Fox has optioned the best-selling work by David Petersen that will be penned by Whitta, the screenwriter of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Reeves, the director of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield, will produce the adaptation via his 6th & Idaho banner, along with Mouse Guard publisher Boom! Studios' Ross Richie and Stephen Christy. Reeves is not intending to helm the project."

I couldn't be more excited about what the future holds for this wonderful series. It's been around for a long time now, and David Petersen has quite the following. This film opportunity only opens up more chances for new readers and well, we get to enjoy what I'm sure will be a fantastic film!
