Girl Power to THE MAX!

It has been over a year since comic book fans learned that the award-winning, kick-a$$, freaking awesome comic, Lumberjanes was being adapted into a film over at Fox! Until today this is what we knew about the film:

Will Widger will be penning the script, BOOM! Studios executives, Ross Richie and Stephen Christy, will produce the film and Adam Yoelin will co-produce. Both Kira Goldberg and Ryan Jones will oversee the project on behalf of the studio.

When the news first broke that the comic was being adapted, the studio made it clear that they would be seeking a female director…then there was radio silence! Which leads us to today and the announcement of the director for the film…

Emily Carmichael!

Back in the day, Carmichael was rumored to be in the running for Captain Marvel. Carmichael is on the rise in the world of directing.

At the moment we don’t know of a production date or slated release date but DUH, we will keep you posted!

Who else is pumped for Emily and Lumberjanes!?
