Emily Carmichael To Bring The Lumberjanes To The Screen

LumberjanesEisnerThe Wrap reports Emily Carmichael will helm the feature film version of Boom! Studios' on-going comic book series The Lumberjanes.

The series, created by Shannon Watters, Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis and Brooke Allen, tells the tale of a summer camp nestled in a mysterious and mystical forest. But it's also about the five campers at Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types who live in the Roanoke Cabin. It's also about their beleaguered camp counselor who'd like a quiet day reading. Oh, and it's about the camp's scout-master every once and awhile.

And sometimes it's about a bear-lady, too.

Carmichael has directed a number of short films and is set to direct Powerhouse, based on a concept by Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow.

20th Century Fox nabbed the book a while back, with Will Widger taking first crack at the script. Boom's Ross Richie and Stephen Christy will produce with Kira Goldberg and Ryan Jones overseeing the project for Fox. It is currently unclear what merit badge the group will receive once the film is completed.
