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.

If you were lucky enough to be a young person in the late 90s with access to PBS, chances are you know exactly who Wishbone is. The precocious Jack Russell terrier with a love for retelling classic stories from novels across the world introduced a generation to books they may have other-wise not ever cracked open. (This is not to take anything away from “Reading Rainbow,” which of course had been doing the same thing for years before Wishbone. But you don’t have to take my word for it.)

The news today is that yes, that rumor from earlier this year is absolutely true- we’re getting a Wishbone movie!

For Mattel Films, Robbie Brenner will executive produce and oversee “Wishbone” along with Kevin McKeon. Lexi Barta will oversee the project for Universal Pictures. Mattel Films will also produce alongside Peter Farrelly, who will direct the film from a script by Roy Parker.

“Our deep library of iconic franchises continues to offer cinematic storytelling opportunities,” Brenner said in a statement about the news. “We’re thrilled to be working with Peter Farrelly, Roy Parker and Universal to take the beloved dog classic into a new direction with a modern reimagination of the franchise.” 

We will of course let you know what we hear about this project. We can’t wait to see the cast list! Who’s gonna play Wanda?!
