Video: Warner Bros. Lose ElfQuest Movie Rights To Producers Of A Fan Trailer

I’ve reported a few times on apparent progress in Warner Bros. attempts to bring Richard and Wendy Pini‘s Elfquest comics to the big screen but now it seems everything they did has turned out to be a bit of a wild goose chase. As of now, the rights are no longer sitting with the big studio but with a pair of independent producers, Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes.

According to the press release, the Pinis have:

agreed to have Thorpe and Rhodes develop their series in order to put the ElfQuest story directly in the hands of its loyal fans. Previously, Thorpe and Rhodes produced the cyber-phenom ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining, a short live-action production.

Cyber-phenom? Well, I don’t know about that. As of now, the video has 122,614 views.

Can you imagine that on a bigger budget, with a longer runtime?

ElfQuest is now an indie film, and all that entails. Good luck to Thorpe and Rhodes. I’m certainly very curious as to how they’ll be able to pull this off.

Meet Thorpe and Rhodes in this video.
