Comic book writer Mark Millar, the mind behind books like Kick-Ass and Wanted that have been turned into successful sequel-spawning movies, is set to make his directorial debut fairly soon with a low-budget, handheld movie called Miracle Park.
True to form, the project involves superheroes, mature content, and the scribe's native Scotland. Empire Magazine were able to catch up with Millar, who spoke a little about the film.
It's a superhero story focusing on a group of animal rights activists who break into a low-level research laboratory to find a mile-long underground base owned and facilitated by the US government. It starts where other superhero movies draw the line.
Miracle Park is chilling, violent and a totally new experience.
We should expect a teaser trailer early next year. It will be interesting to see if Millar can make the leap from writing comics to directing movies. Frank Millar, writer and
artist of Sin City, as well as co-director of the movie adaptation, floundered when making The Spirit, his own solo-directorial effort, and quite sizeable changes have been made to the two major adaptations of Millars work...
