Another one of Mark Millar's creations is headed to the big screen.

Fox is in negotiations to pick up STARLIGHT a series that Millar once said was likened to "Flash Gordon meets The Dark Knight Returns". Millar's other works WANTED, KICK-ASS, and KICK-ASS 2 have all made it to theaters. THE SECRET SERVICE adaptation with Colin Firth will release on November 14, 2014. I'd like to think that NEMESIS will make it there perhaps in this lifetime. That's a damn good comic. Matthew Vaughn has the rights to Millar's SUPERIOR so that will eventually come to fruition.

Must be nice working as a creative consultant at Fox. Eh, he doesn't necessarily need that. Millar is a good writer in my humble opinion, but he does kind of have an in.

Simon Kinberg (X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST) will script and produce the adaptation. Get the synopsis for STARLIGHT below:

So much for retirement! This March, meet Duke McQueen, a man who has long since settled down and left his days of saving the Universe and operating as the space hero everyone depended onóat least thatís what he thought. His wife long passed and his kids off embarking on their own adventures, Duke lives a quiet, solitary life until he receives an unexpected call from a distant world, calling him to action one last time. This March begins an all new ongoing series with STARLIGHT #1, Mark Millar (JUPITERíS LEGACY, KICK-ASS, WANTED) and Goran Parlov's (Fury MAX: My War Gone By, Punisher MAX) much-anticipated first salvo in an intergalactic adventure that will have fans leaning in as they read.

another amazing adaption would be (although it's not millar)...

an freaking awesome comic book adaption, even though it's warren ellis' work, and not millar's, but its seriously an amazing mini-series, which seems like it would adapt beautifully to the big screen: SUPERGOD!!! i highly suggest anyone who hasn't read it, pick up or download the 5-part series as soon as you can, cuz the plot is freaking awesome, and really obscure, for a super-powered realistic take on super-humanity and how it would play out in our reality.... its just fucking awesome. GO

GO READ IT!!!! and then, someone get to pitching this to studios for a big-budget motion picture.... cuz it seriously would be epic, and so much more awesomenessnessnesser than the watchman chronicles, in my opinion, especially if they fleshed out the storyline even more and get into more intricate details of the plotlines in the comics.... anyone else get the opportunity and luck to read the warren ellis miniseries, SUPERGOD???
