Gary Whitta (“The Book of Eli”) has signed on to pen the film adaptation of the Mark Millar comic “Starlight” at 20th Century Fox.
The story follows intergalactic hero Duke McQueen who saved the Earth decades ago. Upon his return though, no one believed his story. Years later, after he has long settled down, he is called upon for one final adventure.
Simon Kinberg will produce, not write originally reported. Whitta is also writing the first “Star Wars” spin-off which is slated to be directed by Gareth Edwards.
