American Jesus optioned for film

So yeah, more Jesus. Mark Millar's work American Jesus is getting heaps and heaps of attention thrown on it. And why not. It's a provocative subject written by an awesome writer. A perfect combination for a movie if I'm not mistaken. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Matthew Vaughn and Millar are in talks to create American Jesus as a movie, almost immediately after their collaboration on Kick-Ass. Vaughn will most likely go the non-studio route as he did with Kick-Ass (that movie depicted teens and children in ultraviolent situations). Production will likely start in the summer, with Marv Films partner Kris Thykier assisting. I'm sure we'll get more information on this as the year progresses, but in the mean time realize that it's a pretty good time to be Mark Millar (or a fan of his work even).
