Mark Millar's SUPERIOR Lands At Fox, With Matthew Vaughn Producing
THR reports that the feature version of Mark Millar's comic Superior has landed at Fox. The Superman/Shazam! homage will be produced by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Secret Service, X-Men: First Class), but a director hasn't been named. It has been hinted this could be the next directorial effort for Vaughn. A writer hasn't been announced, it's very possible Jane Goldman could pen the screenplay.
Superior will be the third collaboration between Millar and 20th Century Fox. Matthew Vaughn is already in post-production on The Secret Service and director Joe Carnahan (Blacklist, Narc, The Grey) recently completed the script for Nemesis with his brother.
