Elfquest Comic Set For Film

Wendy and Richard Pini’s cult comic “Elfquest” is set to become a Warners Bros. Pictures feature film after several failed attempts says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a tribe of elves known as the Wolfriders in their attempts to survive and link with other dispersed elves on an Earth-like planet with two moons while on the lookout for tribes of humans and trolls, both of which acted as allies and enemies.

The series attracted a more mature audience as it went along, with scenes of battles and sexuality that were intense for that time.

Thurber will write, direct and produce the feature, whose format is undetermined.
