Doug TenNapel’s “Flink” graphic novel could become a motion picture
The 2007 graphic novel Flink could become a motion picture, according to Flink creator Doug TenNapel.
During a recent livestream on his YouTube channel, TenNapel mentioned that talks were ongoing with Andy Serkis’ production company The Imaginarium Studios and “the Paddington Bear people” to translate Flink into film, though it’s unclear to whom “the Paddington Bear people” refers (it could be Heyday Films, StudioCanal, TF 1 Group, or DHX Media).
You can watch the full livestream below, though the very brief, critical details are at the 48-minute mark.
Flink (not to be confused with the SEGA CD game of the same name) is about a boy who survives a plane crash and is rescued by a Bigfoot named
Bill Flink. They form a close bond by learning about the loss of each other’s family members.
We reached out to TenNapel for more details, but he declined to comment further. My own speculation is that the discussions are very early, so it would be premature to expect a Flink motion picture anytime soon.
