Mark Millar is no stranger to having his comic books adapted into feature films. So, it is no surprise that yet another of his works is making the way to the silver screen and they have picked quite an exciting comic book to make the jump. “Chrononauts” has been announced for adaptation courtesy of Universal.
“Chrononauts” follows two friends, Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly, who will mess with the theoretical science of time travel during the 1960s race to space. After discovering the ability to mess with time travel, the two buddies must decide how to use the new technology. They can either help mankind or explore the advantages to their own selfish end. The story will show the consequences of messing with such technological capabilities.
Millar is most known in the movie world for the adaptation “Sin City” but the films “Wanted,” “Kick-Ass,” and “Kingsman” were all based on his comic book series as well.
There is currently no word on when Universal is planning to begin production on “Chrononauts” but it is expected to move without delay given the hot commodity that time travel films are currently. They also haven’t revealed whether Millar will be involved with film development.
