Yet another Mark Millar-written indie property is headed to the big screen as it has now been announced that Miller and Stuart Immonen‘s “Empress” is set for a film adaptation, under the pen of scribe F. Scott Frazier (“xXx: The Return of Xander Cage”).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum are producing the “Empress” adaptation.
“Nobody creates universes that translate into big movie ideas better than Millar,” Kirschenbaum told THR. “With Empress he’s raised the bar yet again. Part Star Wars, part Guardians of the Galaxy and part something wholly fresh that only the amazing brain of Millar could spawn.”
“Empress” follows the story of “…a galactic dictator (a la Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon) who makes the decision to leave her evil husband and take her three kids with her. With the aid of a bodyguard, she escapes with her brood — Aine, her 15-year-old daughter who wants to be with her father; Adam, her gentle soul of a 10-year-old son who she knows would not survive the trials ahead to be an elite ruler; and Puck, her 18-month-old – to her home world. But the dictator husband, with armies at his disposal, isn’t going to let her go without a fight.”
The debut issue of “Empress” sold out in April — and the second issue releases tomorrow from Marvel’s Icon imprint.
