Mark Millar's MPH Optioned By Producer Of Transformers
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.25.2014

According to The Hollywood Reporter, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, G.I. Joe) has optioned the rights to Mark Millar's comic MPH. Millar co-created the series with Duncan Fegredo (storyboard artist on Darren Aronofsky's Noah). This is after FOX made a deal for Millar's Superior last week. Di Bonaventura will now look for a writer before setting the project up at a studio.

The series follows four 19-year-olds who acquire a street drug that allows them to move a light-speed for seven days. The first issue will arrive on May 21 through Image Comics.

Millar said that MPH is the latest of his Millarworld titles with screen rights available until 2015, which includes Starlight (at Fox), The Secret Service (coming later this year), Kick-Ass (made into two movies) and Jupiter's Legacy. Millar said that after having a baby and finishing the script for Starlight and the first volume of Legacy, he's going to "chill" before his next projects.

Millar said: "(Lorenzo's) one of the few real moguls in the industry, having hired Chris Nolan for Batman and bought the rights to the Harry Potter books when he was head of Warner Bros. and then of course he's the guy behind the Transformers movies. So he's a guy who really knows how to make huge pictures and he's somebody I've always wanted to work with on one of the bigger Millarworld adaptations."
