UPDATE: ELFQUEST Moves Closer To The Big Screen

A movie adaptation of Wendy and Richard Pini's beloved comic series has been languishing in development Hell in one form or another for many years now, but we may just see some real steps toward production now that Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes have acquired the rights..

You have probably seen Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes' Elfquest: A Fan Imagining short already, and now it seems the duo's love and dedication to the franchise has paid off, as Variety report that they've acquired the movie rights to the 35-year old comic book series by Wendy and Richard Pini.



"With their deep love and understanding of the property, they represent a new direction for ElfQuest...new creative energy and new connections in the larger media." said Wendy Pini of the acquisition. Of course this is only the first step in what will likely be a long road to seeing Cutter, Skywise and co. up on the big screen. Warner Bros. had previously attempted to get an Elfquest movie into production until the rights lapsed earlier in the year.

UPDATE: Here are quotes from Thorpe and Rhodes from the official press release..

"We are thrilled to bring ElfQuest, a tale that has influenced our storytelling and imaginations, to life for new and existing fans," said Thorpe, “The global fan support we've received has been amazing."

Rhodes added, "When we discovered our shared lifelong love for this series we were spurred to action. ElfQuest gave us heroines we could aspire to be and its magic shaped us, ultimately leading us into the creative entertainment sphere. We owe it a lot!"
