MUMBAI: Warner Bros. has picked up the making rights of Sean Rubin’s upcoming graphic novel Bolivar from Archaia Entertainment. The film will be produced by Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster under their Weed Road banner.
Written and illustrated by Rubin, the graphic novel centres on a young girl named Sybil who moves to New York and finds out her neighbour is Bolivar, the last living dinosaur. Despite Sybil's persistent efforts, Bolivar refuses to befriend her.
The dinosaur is somewhat of a recluse, tucked away from the world Sybil so desperately wants him to explore with her. He soon realizes how much she means to him and that he would risk everything for her.
Bolivar, intended to be an animated feature, will be written and directed by Irish filmmaker Kealan O’Rourke.
The graphic novel is due out in May next year.
