Legendary Entertainment has successfully scored the worldwide film rights to “Moana” writer Pamela Ribon and Cat Farris’ recent graphic novel “My Boyfriend is a Bear”.
The unconventional love story follows a girl named Nora who has bad experiences with love due to a succession of terrible boyfriends. While she’s hiking one day, she unexpectedly finds true love in the form of a sweet, considerate and caring 500-pound American Black Bear.
They soon discover that hipster neighbors, judgmental friends, and Bear’s impending need for hibernation will put their relationship to the ultimate test. Alex Hertzberg, Joe Nozemack, James Lucas Jones, and Charlie Chu will executive produce along with Ribon who will adapt the screenplay.
