Attack the block filmmaker Joe Cornish has signed on to write and direct a feature film adaptation of Mark Millarspace hero comic Starlight for 20th Century Studios.

Deadline reports that the long-time Cornish contributor Nira Park that one day he would be a great studio director, now he will produce alongside Simon Kinberg Y Audrey chon genre movies, while Brian Dukes will supervise the long-term project of the study.

Goran parlov drew the comic, which was published in 2014 by Image Comics.

Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) had been chosen to adapt the book in 2014, but Cornish will start from scratch. Although I have not read Starlight myself, I look up the description above, and have really enjoyed the past adaptations of his work, ranging from Kick ass Y Wanted toward Kingsman films.

Like most people, I am a huge fan of Cornish’s film debut, Attack the block, who launched the future Star Wars hero John boyega, and I also really liked his 2019 fantasy movie The boy who would be king. Also, Cornish has a writing credit on Best Marvel Movie: Ant Man.

Cornish is notoriously picky about the projects they get involved in, so the fact that they want to tackle Starlight it’s exciting and based on the comic’s description, it’s a project that seems to be right up your alley. I can’t wait to see who he chooses as Duke McQueen, who has the kind of name that hit movies, and even franchises, are made of.
