Universal Options Mark Millar & Sean Murphy’s CHRONONAUTS

In what is becoming a trend for Mark Millar, his latest book Chrononauts is headed for the silver screen.

According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter, the writer of Kick-Ass, Wanted, Kingsman: The Secret Service and the widely heralded Starlight (already headed for film with Fox) has inked a deal with Universal to adapt the time-travel miniseries for a feature under the direction of Universal’s Jay Polidoro.

Chrononauts #1Millar and Chrononauts co-creator Sean Murphy will serve as executive producers for the project, which has yet to name a director or begin casting.

The news is sure to boost sales of the first issue, which hit comic book stores this Wednesday, and will almost certainly help sustain the title in a highly competitive independent market. In the wake of the announcement, Millar took to Twitter to thank the comic book fans who helped boost the series’ initial sales with pre-orders.
