Mark Millar recently chimed in about the potential of an upcoming War Heroes film. Today, the comic's creator updated his blog Millar World with the following post:
I was in London working (and hanging out with some MW buds) over the last couple of days, but War Heroes officially went out to the studios yesterday after a few weeks of informal chats. I woke up to find a cluster of emails from Martin Spencer, my agent at CAA, and my attorney Harris Miller.
The good news? Pretty much all the big guys in town are going in for this and things should really start moving in the next couple of days. Tony and I had a dream director in mind for the project and, weirdly, he was the first email, suggesting he directs if his production company gets their hands on the material. But three genuine heroes are already in the mix for this so I have a feeling we're going to end up in good hands.
After weeks of informal chats (we wanted to wait until issue two was actually in print and they had either script or full plot for the remaining issues) we're really going to MOVE now. It's going to be an exciting few days, I think. As ever, I'll keep you posted. But this is my last NEW Hollywood thing until the Spring. I've pretty much finished all my current commitments and want to get deep into Ultimate Avengers before I start up anything else.
We will keep you updated with any future news about the upcoming War Heroes film.
