No Elfquest Movie

According to SFX Warner Bros. has decided against going ahead with a movie based on the long-running Elfquest comic because of fear of competition with The Hobbit. The comic follows a community of elfs struggling to live on a primitive world similar to Earth.

Plans for an Elfquest movie have been in “development hell” for the past four years, leading some to express releif that they at least finally have an official answer. Personally, although I understand Warner Bros. concerns, it is a shame that they aren’t able to allow Elfquest to reach a wider audience.
