In the late 1990s, a movie based on the 'Bone' Comics was in production by Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures, Jeff Smith said in a 2003 interview that Nickelodeon had insisted on the Bone cousins being voiced by child actors, and wanted the film's soundtrack to include pop songs by the likes of N'Sync. Smith's response was that one would never insert pop songs in the middle of The Lord of the Rings or The Empire Strikes Back, and therefore pop songs should not be placed in Bone either.
Why It Was Cancelled
- Jeff Smith did not like what Nickelodeon was doing with the movie. He felt that child actors for the Bone cousins was a miscast and adding in pop songs would not fit the tone nor narrative of Bone.
- On October 2019, the Warner Bros. Bone film was eventually cancelled in favor of an animated series based on the Bone comics produced by Netflix.
