Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We are so delighted to share the news that Elizabeth Banks will be taking on the mantle of one of our absolutely favorite teachers ever, Ms. Frizzle! A live adaptation of classic 90s educational cartoon “The Magic School Bus” has long been rumored, so this is really exciting for fans of the field trip obsessed. Universal Pictures is home to this project.

As Variety reports, Banks will be producing the film, with Max Handelman for Brownstone Productions, Iole Lucchese for Scholastic, Caitlin Friedman, along with Marc Platt and Adam Siegel for Marc Platt Productions. Alison Small will serve as executive producer for Brownstone Productions.

Scholastic Entertainment’s President and Chief Strategy Officer Iole Lucchese said:


“We are delighted to bring to life the iconic Ms. Frizzle and her zest for knowledge and adventure in a fresh new way that inspires the next generation of kids to explore science and supports the dedicated teachers who help make science real and accessible for young learners every day.”


No word yet on a possible release date for the project, or if we’ll be seeing live-action versions of the iconic students (AND LIZ!) of the Frizz.
