Looks like the high-octane sibling team of Joe and Matthew Michael Carnahan have nailed the script for the screen adaptation of Nemesis, the beloved work by Wanted and Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar. The project is set at Fox, and this guy isn’t easy to please. Here’s Millar’s evaluation of what the Carnahans have accomplished after they gave Millar the script.

How can I put this?

Nemesis is one of the most relentless and powerful screenplays I’ve ever read. I was actually SHELL-SHOCKED after reading it, thinking about it for hours afterwards and discussing it with the family. As a movie, the Carnahans have crafted something we’ve never actually seen before and I feel like someone in Julia Phillips’ office must have felt when Schrader’s TAXI DRIVER script first landed on their desk. This is going to be one of the best movies of the decade. The fact that it’s a SUPERHERO movie is incredibly exciting to me. This is the next step for where a comic-book adaptation can go and, simply as a viewer, I’m now counting down the days until I can sit in a screening room and see the first cut.

This is going to be MASSIVE.

Fox Sets Mark Millar’s Family-Friendly ‘Kindergarten Heroes’; Carter Blanchard To Script

EXCLUSIVE: 20th Century Fox has set Carter Blanchard to script a film based on his pitch for an adaptation of the Mark Millar comic Kindergarten Heroes. It’s the next movie transfer for Millar, whose comic creations include the decidedly adult-themed Wanted and Kick-Ass. He hasn’t abandoned the superhero set, but he has taken aim at young readers with Kindergarten Heroes. Simon Kinberg will produce under his Fox deal. Steve Asbell is the executive on the project, and the hope is to hatch a family-friendly film franchise. Blanchard is coming off Glimmer, a priority project at DreamWorks, and Spy Hunter, which has Ruben Fleischer directing for Warner Bros and producer Dan Lin. Blanchard is repped by Paradigm and Madhouse.
