Jupiter's Legacy

Following the arrival of Kingsman: The Secret Service earlier this year, comic writer Mark Millar also had his time traveling adventure comic book series Chrononauts picked up for a feature film. And now yet another of Millar's titles will be heading to the big screen. THR reports the sci-fi comic Jupiter's Legacy will head to the big screen as Millar has decided to team with Transformers and G.I. Joe franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to adapt the comic into a feature film. And as with pretty much all of the comic writer's properties, the idea sounds pretty damn fantastic, focusing on the lazy offspring of superheroes.

The story follows the next generation of superheroes who simply haven't lived up to the standards created by their iconic parents, who obtained their superpowers in the 1920s after they discovered a mysterious island. Millar described the comic last year, "We have the last remains of these old-school heroes and their mainly vacuous children living in L.A., a massive disappointment to the first generation of super-people and just lost, no real direction in their lives beyond advertising gigs and opening night clubs." That sounds like a cool story to tell, ripe with good stuff for a feature film, but first a writer has to be found. Sound cool?

I'll see anything that adapts MIllar's works. Bonaventura's name is a bit troubling to see.

Although can't deny that he's good at getting money to throw at the movies he's attached to.
