Official Press Release
Kapow! is delighted to announce that the white hot, Oscar-nominated director of Supercrooks, Nacho Vigalondo, will be attending their convention in May. Supercrooks is the latest comic-book series from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Wanted) and the Spanish director will be interviewed live about the new project on the Total Film stage.
The Spanish director, who's previous work includes Time-Crimes and Extraterrestrial, will be talking about directing and co-writing the screenplay as well as detailing us on all his future feature plans. Nacho explains, "I visited Kapow! last year to have a look around and enjoy myself, and believe it is the perfect platform to start talking about my plans for the Supercrooks movie. I really love comics, and of course movies, so Kapow! is my idea of a perfect weekend".
Nacho was behind the entertaining Supercrooks comic-book viral which launched earlier this week on Hollywood Reporter, and rapidly spread around the internet - watch it here
Supercrooks, co-created and illustrated by Leinil Yu (Superior), and described by Millar as "X-Men meets Ocean's 11" is about a group of supervillains who head to Europe to pull off a massive heist, figuring that that there are too many superheroes in America these days. Marc Platt, who producedÂ Wanted, is on board to produce with actors yet to be officially attached.
