Emily Carmichael To Direct “Lumberjanes” Film

Emily Carmichael (“The Adventures of Ledo and Ix”) has been tapped to direct the film adaptation of the fan-favorite comic series “Lumberjanes” at 20th Century Fox.

The series follows five teenage girl best friends determined to have an awesome summer together at summer camp… and they’re not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way.

The series was awarded the Best New Series and Best Publication for Teens at the 2015 Eisner awards. Will Widger (“The Munchkin”) penned the first draft of the film’s script. Stephen Christy, Ross Richie and Adam Yoelin will produce.
