In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, filmmaker Matthew Vaughn and comics creator Mark Millar (Wanted) will be teaming up for an adaptation of the comic American Jesus.

Recently, these two artists worked on the film Kick-Ass

The comic looks at the return of Christ in today's world and what happens when he confronts the Antichrist.

The book was made with artist Peter Gross and originally appeared as a three-issue miniseries in 2006. The title of the comic then was "Chosen." Millar continued the story as a trilogy of miniseries, and the property eventually became known as American Jesus.

The plan is for this movie to start shooting in the summer.
