Arcana Comics has told SFcrowsnest that Telefilm Canada, a Canadian cultural film agency, is putting up the folding green stuff for an animated film based on the Clockwork Girl comics.
Created by Sean O’Reilly and Kevin Hanna, Clockwork Girl tells the tale of a nameless robot girl who has recently been given the gift of life from her creator. While she explores the wonders of an ordinary world she meets a mutant boy and they share a friendship that must survive their fueding families.
Clockwork Girl co-creator Kevin Hanna told SFcrowsnest.com, “I'm not sure how much I can say, other then I am thrilled that things are going as well as I ever hoped they could be. Working in Hollywood, I know that adaptations are a gamble that often taint the source material. So far everything is going right with Clockwork Girl, the people involved really understand the spirit of the book and the characters. I think fans of the book will be very happy with where this ends up.”
