Mark Millar’s Kindergarten Heroes Heads to the Big Screen

First announced in 2012, Kindergarten Heroes is the Kick-Ass creator’s foray into family-friendly fare. At this time, however, the book has not yet announced a firm publication date.

“Kindergarten Heroes is my first children’s book,” Millar posted on his Twitter feed, “and is co-owned 50/50 by the brilliant Curtis Tiegs, whom I met on the Millarworld boards.

Simon Kinberg, whose screenwriting credits include the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, is attached to produce with Steve Asbell executive producing. There’s no word yet on whether the film will go the live-action or animation route, but studio’s hope is to use Kindergarten Heroes to launch a franchise.
