There are new signs of life for Mark Millar‘s Supercrooks and American Jesus. Over five years ago, Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo became attached to Supercrooks, and he later went on to direct a teaser trailer for the comic book, but we’ve heard little about the film adaptation since then. And even longer ago, Matthew Vaughn was attached to produce American Jesus, as a followup to his successful collaboration with Millar on Kick-Ass. A summer 2009 start date was speculated, but never came to fruition.
Today, there is finally some news for both projects. Waypoint Entertainment has purchased the rights to the two comic book titles. Vigalondo and Vaughn’s names aren’t mentioned in the official press release, so perhaps they’re no longer involved in either project.
