The title announced by Image Comics earlier this week, Mark Millar and Goran Parlov’s Starlight is heading to the big screen. Latino Review broke the news that 20th Century Fox is interested in developing the property into a feature film with Simon Kinberg attached to provide the screenplay.
The first issue of Starlight will hit stands in March with the following official description:
So much for retirement! Meet Duke McQueen, a man who has long since settled down and left his days of saving the Universe and operating as the space hero everyone depended on—at least that’s what he thought. His wife long passed and his kids off embarking on their own adventures, Duke lives a quiet, solitary life until he receives an unexpected call from a distant world, calling him to action one last time.
Kinberg is no stranger to either Fox or comic book properties. He has worked on the scripts to past features like X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class and his upcoming credits include X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Fantastic Four.
