Comic book writer Mark Millar continues to pen hit after hit, and after the success of Kick-Ass and Wanted, the fact that many of his creations are on their way to the big screen should come as no real surprise. The next will be The Secret Service, directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson.

Looking a little further ahead to the future, we have Starlight, the tale of an air force pilot called Duke McQueen. He became a hero in outer space and saved the universe over forty years ago, but when he returned to Earth, no one believed him! Mourning the death of his wife, the much older Duke once again finds himself drafted into action for one final adventure on the planet he saved all those years ago.

It’s an epic space set tale, so the fact Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli) has been drafted in to write the screenplay makes perfect sense considering the fact that he’s in the middle of penning a Star Wars spin-off!

The comic book version of Starlight features artwork from Goran Parlov and it has been released through Image Comics, the publishers of The Walking Dead. The series has not yet reached its conclusion.

Whitta is writing the Star Wars spin-off which Gareth Edwards is directing for a December 16th, 2016 release. There’s no word on who it will focus on, but rumour has it that it could be Boba Fett!
