Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura Wants Jupiter’s Legacy on TV
One of Mark Miller’s comic book series may find it’s way into the small screen. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is looking for a studio to adapt the 2013 limited series Jupiter’s Legacy into television. This might be the first time one of Miller’s comics is coming to television.
Back in April 2015, Lorenzo di Bonaventura was looking to find a home for Miller and Frank Quitely’s limited series Jupiter’s Legacy. The producer gave an update to The Hollywood Reporter on the project, and it seems like he thinks this would be better suited for TV. Here’s what he said on Jupiter’s Legacy:
I have a project with Mark Millar, who wrote [the comic that became] Kingsman: The Secret Service, that is a superhero project: Jupiter’s Legacy. What attracted me to it was it’s not repeating what everybody else has done. It’s not yet set up at a studio. Its universe is so expansive that it’s, in some ways, more conducive to a television treatment. I’m doing it either way.
In the comics, the story takes on a realistic approach to superheroes and showcases how the children of their super-powered parents end up making a name for themselves in a world flooded by pop culture and social media. Last June, Brian and Mark Gunn were picked to write the screenplay.
What do you think? Does Jupiter’s Legacy deserve to be a television series rather than a film?
