JESUS RETURNS TO KICK ASS WITH MILLAR AND VAUGHN

Thursday, March 26 by

After working with him on Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn is looking to reteam with real-life comic book hero Mark Millar for another comic book adaptation.  So says the Hollywood Reporter

That next project would be Millar’s "American Jesus" comic book, which centers on the return of Christ to the modern world, where he squares off in the ultimate smackdown with the Antichrist, in order to save humanity.

Millar’s book was originally a 2006 three-issue miniseries called "Chosen." When Millar decided to continue the story as a trilogy of miniseries, the series became known as "American Jesus." The second issue is subtitled "The Resurrection" and will be coming out later this year.

Here’s the rest of the morning’s good news:
