American Jesus

Recommended Posts

Fresh off their collaboration on Kick-Ass, filmmaker Matthew Vaughn and comics creator Mark Millar are in talks to reteam for another comic book adaptation, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Vaughn is eyeing Millar's "American Jesus" as his next directing vehicle, which would be produced by Vaughn and his Marv Films partner Kris Thykier and financed independently in the same manner as Kick-Ass.

The story centers on the return of Christ in the modern world, leading to a final confrontation with the Antichrist in a bid to save humanity.

The book, made with artist Peter Gross, originally appeared as a three-issue miniseries in 2006 with the title "Chosen." When Millar decided to continue the story as a trilogy of miniseries, the overarching title became "American Jesus." The second installment is subtitled "The Resurrection" and is due out in the fall.

A summer start is being posited, though Vaughn also is developing another project with Millar, a still-in-the-works action film.

If they make this entire movie without including the song of the same name by Bad Religion I will burn Hollywood to the ground and force feed the ashes to Millar.

That is all.
