It’s not exactly a secret that Mark Millar has been gearing up to direct his very own feature film over the past several months. But beyond his comments that the movie takes place in Scotland, deals with superheroes and sports a modest budget, not much is known about the project.
That’s not the case anymore, however, as Millar has provided IGN with the film’s title, plot, set photographs and even some information on scheduling. According to the report, the movie is titled Miracle Park and it’s described by Millar as X-Men meets Trainspotting.
The story, set in modern day Scotland, centers on “a group of animal rights activists who break into a low-level research laboratory to find a mile-long underground base owned and facilitated by the US government.” The film is being shot on a hand-held camera, “establishing a tone more consistent with Paranormal Activity or The Last Exorcism than a traditional superhero release.”
“Miracle Park is chilling, violent and a totally new experience in cinema,” according to Millar’s release. “Miracle Park starts where other superhero movies draw the line.”
Principal photography on Miracle Park concludes at the end of October with post-production expected to last until January. Millar believes a teaser trailer will be ready by then.
