In another case of "movie before the book it’s based on has even released," 20th Century Fox has named Carter Blanchard as screenwriter on a film based on his pitch for adapting Mark Millar’s kid comic Kindergarten Heroes, according to Deadline.
The children’s book/comic hybrid penned by Millar (Kick-Ass, Wanted) and illustrated by Curtis Tiegs, was announced back in February on Comic Book Resources, and is reportedly set to published by UK book publisher Books Noir (though no information could be found confirming that; the Books Noir Website hasn’t been updated since 2009, and nothing appears on amazon.co.uk).
Blanchard, has been working on the DreamWorks project Glimmer, as well as the Warner Brother’s adaption of Spy Hunter. Simon Kinberg (producer on X-Men: First Class, Elysium, X-Men Days of Future Past, and executive producer on the Star Wars Rebels TV series) was announced as producer, with Steve Asbell to executive produce.
