Exclusive: 20th Century Fox has set Carter Blanchard to script a film based on his pitch for an adaptation of the Mark Millar comic Kindergarten Heroes. It’s the next movie transfer for Millar, whose comic creations include the decidedly adult-themed Wanted and Kick-Ass. He hasn’t abandoned the superhero set, but he has taken aim at young readers with Kindergarten Heroes. Simon Kinberg will produce under his Fox deal. Steve Asbell is the executive on the project, and the hope is to hatch a family-friendly film franchise. Blanchard is coming off Glimmer, a priority project at DreamWorks, and Spy Hunter, which has Ruben Fleischer directing for Warner Bros and producer Dan Lin. Blanchard is repped by Paradigm and Madhouse. »
