“Kingsman” and “Kick-Ass” author Mark Millar is partnering with producers Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum on a film adaptation of his latest work “Empress”.
Stuart Immonen co-created the comic about a wife of a Ming the Merciless-style galactic dictator who makes the decision to leave her evil husband and take her three kids with her.
With the aid of a bodyguard, she escapes with her brood to her home world. But the dictator husband, with armies at his disposal, isn’t going to let her go without a fight.
F. Scott Frazier (“xXx: The Return of Xander Cage”) has been tapped to pen the script. Millar has numerous projects in development including “Supercrooks,” “American Jesus,” “Huck,” “Chrononauts,” and “Starlight””
