Mark Millar Talks ‘Miracle Park’

Mark Millar says Miracle Park is Trainspotting Meets X-MenKick-Ass co-creator Mark Millar talked with IGN about a low-budget superhero thriller he's directing, Miracle Park, which he describes as "Trainspotting meets X-Men."

Millar gave away some of the film's plot:

Set in contemporary Scotland, this dark, unique superhero story focuses on a group of animal rights activists who break into a low-level research laboratory to find a mile-long underground base owned and facilitated by the US government...Miracle Park breaks all the taboos of superhero cinema and offers a completely new take on the genre...The movie is shot entirely on a hand-held camera, establishing a tone more consistent with Paranormal Activity or The Last Exorcism than a traditional superhero release.

The film plans to shoot though the end of October, and a teaser will be released in January.
