Lumberjanes is a comic book series created by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooke A. Allen and Noelle Stevenson. The series is set at ‘Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types’ and follows the exploits of the Lumberjane scouts of the Roanoke cabin — Jo, April, Molly, Mal and Ripley as they battle supernatural forces.

20th Century Fox optioned the comic for a live-action movie in May of 2015. And now rising indie filmmaker Emily Carmichael has been announced as the director. Carmichael was most recently floated as a possible director for Marvel’s upcoming Captain Marvel big screen adaptation. She made a name for herself directing award-winning shorts including 2011’s The Hunter and the Swan Discuss Their Meeting and 2013’s RPG OKC.

Ross Richie and Stephen Christy are producing for BOOM! with Adam Yoelin co-producing.
