Emily the strange is a film based on a character created by Rob Reger.The film will be live-action with some animation elements. "Emily" has grown into a multimillion-dollar industry, including an apparel line, three bestsellers published by Chronicle Books and an upcoming quarterly from Dark Horse Comics.
Since 2000, Rob Reger has been trying to make a feature film adaptation of Emily. In 2005, it was reported that Fox Animation would make a live action/animated feature film, with Chris Meledandri and John Cohen producing it. In 2008, it was reported that Mike Richardson, of Dark Horse Entertainment, had come on board as a producer. The same year it was unofficially reported that the film has moved to Universal Studios' owned Illumination Entertainment, along with the studio's founders, Meledandri and Cohen. In September 2010, it was reported that Universal Studios has acquired the rights to the comic, and that the actress Chloë Grace Moretz has been cast in the role of Emily. In August 2011, it was announced that Melisa Wallack, who wrote the script for Mirror Mirror, had been hired to write the adaptation. Two months later it was confirmed that the film is indeed in the works at Illumination Entertainment.
