Mark Millar's STARLIGHT being Developed into a Movie

Mark Millar's six-part graphic novel mini-series "Starlight" is still ongoing (issue number five was just released last month), but Twentieth Century Fox is already picking it up for a movie adaptation. Gary Whitta, who has been hired to write one of the upcoming Star Wars standalone films to be directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards, has been hired to pen the script for this "Starlight" adaptation as well. No target release date has been announced yet.

"Starlight" taps on classic space opera sensibilities. Millar himself described it as a mash-up of Flash Gordon and The Dark Knight Returns. The story centers on Duke McQueen who, forty years ago, saved an alien world from destruction. Back on Earth, nobody believed his story. Now his kids are grown, his wife has passed on, and life has little to offer. Until the day a strange boy from the world he once saved makes an appearance, coaxing Duke to join him on one last adventure. Can Duke handle the leap from has-been to hero?
