“Attack the Block” and “The Kid Who Would Be King” director Joe Cornish has signed on to write and direct the long-gestating film adaptation of “Kingsman” and “Kick-Ass” creator Mark Millar’s “Starlight” at 20th Century Studios.
The story follows intergalactic hero Duke McQueen who saved the Earth decades ago. Upon his return though, no one believed his story.
Years later, after he has long settled down and had a family, he is called upon for one final adventure when his old rocket shows up.
Simon Kinberg, Audrey Chon and Nira Park are producing. Cornish also penned Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin”.
