Indulging in a little bit of fantasy casting, Mark Millar, comic book impresario and creator of the likes of Wanted, Kick-Ass and the hugely successful Kingsman: The Secret Service – not to mention the fact that he was the original writer of Marvel’s Civil War – has been sounding out the future stars of another comic adaptation, Chrononauts.
The comic mini-series, which Millar co-created with Sean Gordon Murphy, follows a bromance across time between to fairly cavalier time travellers who decided to ditch causality for cross generational good times.
This week, the production found a writer and a producer, in the duel forms of Philip Gawthorne (Modern Life is Rubbish) and Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious), and now Millar has taken to Twitter to discuss who he wants to see play co-leads.
He posted three connected tweets, saying that he originally had Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth in mind, but that there could be no casting until the script is finished.
Millar went on to explain that the comic book was born out of a dream project for the pair that he was asked to develop for Universal – the pair are even referenced in issue #4 of the comic.
Although he would love to see these two comic stars bring Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly to life, absolutely nothing is confirmed.
Chrononauts is yet to have a release date.
