Millar & McNiven’s ‘Nemesis’ Headed to Hollywood, Tony Scott Onboard to Direct

Most folks would consider four issues of a comic a solid storyline. For Mark Millar, it’s just another movie deal.

In what should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention to Millar’s career to date (and let’s be honest, it’s hard not to pay attention to Millar these days), Bleeding Cool has announced that “Nemesis” — his ultra-violent, “what if Batman were a supervillain?” Marvel/Icon ongoing with artist Steve McNiven — has been scooped up by 20th Century Fox, with Tony Scott (he of “Top Gun” and “True Romance” fame) onboard to direct and production company Scott Free set to produce. “Nemesis” marks the third Millar creation to (potentially) hit the big screen, following successful adaptations of “Wanted” and “Kick-Ass.”That said, fans of “Nemesis” may want to temper their excitement for now, despite such high-profile luminaries being attached to the project. After all, Scott has been attached to several announcements as of late — including some that may make some fanboys groan in disgust (i.e. a remake of the 1979 classic, “The Warriors”) — so we could be in for a long wait until we see the white-costumed psychopath grace the multiplex.

In any event, congrats to Millar and co-creator Steve McNiven on the news.
