Emily the Strange Movie Planned

Gothic cult figure “Emily the Strange” is about to get her own feature film says The Hollywood Reporter.

Dark Horse Entertainment president Mike Richardson will produce the project which will serve as the origin story of the gothic figure and her four mysterious cats.

Created in the early 1990s by Rob Reger, the character originally appeared on stickers and clothing before moving to comic books in 2005 to expand the brand.

Richardson and Reger are looking for a filmmaker who “gets the character”, and its not yet been determined whether the movie will be live-action, animation, or a combination of the two.

There’ll also be thirteen new characters with names like Earwig, Umlaut, McFreeley and Officer Summers.
