Hollywood Eyes New Comic Title
MPH, writer Mark Millar’s latest comic book, is quickly catching the attention of Hollywood.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who has produced big screen movies Red, GI Joe and Transformers, recently optioned the screen rights to the comic.
The first issue of Image Comics’ title, which involves four teenagers who acquire a drug that allows them to move at lightening speed for seven days, will be released on May 21.
Millar created the comic together with Duncan Fegredo, who was storyboard artist on Noah.
MPH, is the last comic title to be released under Millar’s Millarworld label. Previous comics released under that label include Starlight, The Secret Service, due to be released as a movie later this year, and Kick- Ass, which has already been made into two movies.
