Universal Taps Chris Morgan To Produce Mark Millar’s Chrononauts

20 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After the likes of Wanted, Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service all received stellar film adaptations, another of Mark Millar’s original comic book tales has now been earmarked for the same treatment. And it’s not even hit shelves yet.

Chrononauts, the first issue of which lands on newsstands next week, has been snapped up by Universal with Fast & Furious writer Chris Morgan attached to produce through his production label. It tells the story of two time traveling astronauts whose jaunts into the vast expanse of space and time lead the pair into a series of adventures. Millar created the series along with artist Sean Gordon Murphy, both of whom will executive produce the movie.

Here’s the full synopsis for the book, which we can assume will also be the story outline for the movie:

Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly are two red-blooded American guys who also happen to be scientific geniuses. »

Comic Book Review – Chrononauts #1

17 March 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zeb Larson reviews Chrononauts #1…

From Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Sean Gordon Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus) comes a bromance for the ages! Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly are two buddies who love to have fun. They’re also scientific geniuses. When their research leads them to a time-traveling adventure, will they use their knowledge for the good of all mankind? Or use the space-time continuum for their own ends? This is the story of man’s first, televised steps through the time-stream and everything going wrong in the process.

With Chrononauts, Mark Millar has managed to inject a bit of energy into the otherwise tired premise of time travel, namely by putting the time-travel action on TV. This is a fun book. Sure, you have to accept all of the plot holes and close your eyes to the inconsistencies or scientific fallacies. But if you’re the kind of person who »

Mark Millar Teases Nemesis Movie

16 March 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mark Millar, creator of Wanted and Kick-Ass, has taken to Facebook to tease fans about another long, long, Long gestating adaptation.

Nemesis has been floating around for years now with various figures attached at different stages, and through a sly post to his social media hub, Millar has kickstarted that craze again.

Post by Mark Millar.

Post by Mark Millar.

For those who are unaware, the comic revolves around a philanthropic billionaire who uses his technological prowess and bags of cash to fight for what’s right! And what’s right to him is pretty much pursuing every violent and sordid whim to its fullest, without any regard for who gets in the way of his selfish endeavors. There’s a reason the character has been dubbed “Batman meets the Joker.”

At one stage, Joe Carnahan was incredibly interested in directing. He even penned a script that Millar himself showered with praise. »

Kingsman: The Secret Service crosses $250 million worldwide

15 March 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having made it five weeks inside the top 5 for the past five weeks, Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service has passed yet another milestone.

Adding another $6.2 million domestically over the weekend, Kingsman: The Secret Service now now sits on $257.6 million with $107.3 million of that from the Us. This makes it the fourth biggest movie of 2014, but with the movie yet to be released in China, it could catch-up with and pass The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water ($270.9 million), which has yet to open in the UK, and Taken 3‘s $289.5 million. But it certainly won’t catch up with Fifty Shades of Grey, which sits on $546.5 million.

Still, this can only be good news for 20th Century Fox and Matthew Vaughn, who had hoped for a sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service so long as this one delivered at the box office. Having now made over $250 million against an $80 million budget, »

Mark Millar interview: Kingsman, Chrononauts and Thatcherites

7 March 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mark Millar is undeniably a comics phenomenon, a writer with his own, self-named comics line who attracts some of the best artists in the business to collaborate with him.

He sat down with Digital Spy to discuss his Kingsman: The Secret Service comic - which he created with Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons - as well as Matthew Vaughn's recent film adaptation and Millar's next comics, Chrononauts and Jupiter's Circle.

He addresses the Kingsman film's controversial joke, Vaughn's surprising political leanings and much more:

You famously corresponded with Dave Gibbons when you were a young fan. How did it feel to get to work with him on Kingsman?

"It was the most thrilling thing for me. I can remember first seeing Dave's stuff when I was about 12 and really getting into it, hearing all these rumours of projects he was doing at DC with Alan Moore. I think I've only »

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Written by Jane Goldman Matthew Vaugh

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

United States/United Kingdom, 2015

Matthew Vaughn’s latest zany endeavour into the world of violent and brash comic book movie adaptations begins with a strange bit of backstory transpiring somewhere in the Middle East in 1997. Amidst significant gunfire and bombings, Harry Galahad (Colin Firth) and his band of Kingsman, a very secretive agency of assassin spies that masquerade in London as a men’s tailor shop, are interrogating a hooded prisoner in their grasp. Much to their surprise, the prisoner has a grenade on him, but before the villain can take all their lives along with his own, one of the Kingsman risks his life, jumping on the explosive device, thus saving Harry and Merlin (Mark Strong). Harry, distraught at the fact that he could not better protect his team, offers the departed’s son a special neck chain, »
