One of the most legendary independent comic books might finally complete its journey to the silver screen. The Hollywood Reporter states that Warner Brothers and director Rawson Thurber will present us with an Elfquest movie.
Elfquest was created by Wendy and Richard Pini in 1978 and the creators self-published the title through their WARP imprint (WARP stands for Wendy And Richard Pini). It stands as one of the first independent comics books published, although it was published through Marvel’s Epic line and DC’s Wildstorm line through a special arrangement with the creators.
Previous attempts to adapt Elfquest, either as an animated cartoon or live-action movie, have failed in the past. But this might be the right time for an Elfquest movie, considering the popularity of comic book movies and Lord of the Rings type sword-and-sorcery films.
