It's been eleven months since Netflix bought Millarworld and the network finally has progress to announce. The network is developing three movies and two TV shows based on Mark Millar comics.
The first movie will be Empress, which is being adapted by Lindsey Beer (Kingkiller Chronicle and the upcoming Sierra Burgess is a Loser for Netflix and Wizards of Once for DreamWorks Animation). Empress was co-created with Stuart Immonen.
Queen Emporia is married to (literally) the worst dictator in the galaxy, King Morax. After escaping his palace with her children, Emporia and her family, must hide from Morax and his army at all costs -- even if it takes teleporting from planet to planet to avoid them.
The second film is Huck, which is being adapted by Ted Melfi (Hidden Figures, St. Vincent). Huck was co-created with Rafael Albuquerque.
In a quiet seaside town, Huck uses his special gifts to do a good deed each day. His neighbors return the favors by keeping his abilities a secret. But when a newcomer alerts the media, a firestorm erupts, sending Huck on an adventure that will change everything.
The third movie is Sharkey the Bounty Hunter, which is being screenwritten by Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, 21 Jump Street). It will be published as a Millarworld/Netflix comic next year
Set in a brilliant new sci-fi universe, Sharkey is a blue-collar bounty-hunter tracking criminals across the galaxy in his converted, rocket-powered ice-cream truck. Aided and abetted by his ten-year-old partner, he's out for the biggest bounty of his career.
The first TV show will be American Jesus, which will be co-showun by Everardo Gout (Marvel's Luke Cage, Sacred Lies, Mars, Banshee, Aqui En La Tierra) and Leopoldo Gout (Molly's Game, Instinct). American Jesus was co-created with Peter Gross.
American Jesus follows a twelve-year-old boy who suddenly discovers he's returned as Jesus Christ. He can turn water into wine, make the crippled walk, and, perhaps, even raise the dead! How will he deal with the destiny to lead the world in a conflict thousands of years in the making?
The second TV show will be Jupiter's Legacy, which will be showrun by Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil, Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Jupiter's Legacy was co-created with Frank Quitely.
upiter's Legacy follows the world's first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930's. In present day they are the revered elder guard, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents.
Sharkey The Bounty Hunter and American Jesus are set for a 2020 release, while Jupiter's Legacy is set for 2021. Empress and Huck don't have dates attached yet.
