Amazon Plans An “Emily The Strange” Movie

Dark Horse Entertainment is in negotiations with Amazon Studios to produce an animated film based on Rob Reger’s pop culture figure Emily the Strange.

The character is a punky goth girl with assorted cats. Created by skateboarder Rob Reger in the early 1990s, it is in the process of being set up to be adapted. Should the deal happen then Reger, Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg would produce.

A search for writers is underway. The design took on a life of its own two decades ago, leading to a multimillion-dollar worldwide business involving fashion, books and comics, toys, school supplies and accessories took off.

Dark Horse has been publishing Emily comics since 2005. Chloe Grace Moretz was attached to a previous attempt at a live-action film adaptation at Universal that didn’t end up happening.
