Mark Miller’s Comic Book Series Huck Gets Big Screen Treatment. Hollywood has been getting a lot of source material lately from comic book scribe Mark Miller. After revealing his brand new comic, Mark Miller’s new superhero series Huck will be the next comic to become a film.
The new superhero series was announced for a big screen treatment after Image Comics revealed the cover for the comic book, according to The Tracking Board. Former WB executive Jeff Robinov’s production house Studio 8 will be responsible for turning Huck into a feature film. Sony Pictures will likely produce the project as well since they co-fund Studio 8. Miller actually teased about Huck possibly becoming a film back in July after announcing the new comic.
Huck, which Miller co-wrote with Rafael Albuquerque, follows a small-town hero who anonymously does a good deed every day, until someone exposes his secret to the media. The first issue doesn’t come out until November 18, 2015. Miller described the story with ComicBook.com as a the ultimate feel-good comic.” With the similar dark and serious tones of superheroes from both comic books and films, Miller said he hopes to shift away from that and take the superhero genre back to it’s roots by having a character who has a pure heart. He also added:
Rafa and I have created a character here that’s unlike anything else on the market and we’re really excited about it. Our idea for the variants here is to have a little fun and do homages to classic feel-good movies. We’ve got things like ET and so on coming up, this first one being a tip of the hat to The Goonies. He’s done an amazing job on this book by the way. I think people are going to be weeping when they read this book.
Mark Miller’s other series Kick-Ass, Wanted, and Kingsman: The Secret Service have all been adapted into successful films with other comics of his that will also be getting the big-screen treatment soon. Do you guys think Huck could be the next big hit from the comic book writer?
