Millar Gets The Wanted He Wants

Over on the Millarworld forums, the man Mark Millar himself has almost drowned in excitement (read: excitement triggered pee) in anticipation for Timur Bekmambetov's upcoming film of his comic book Wanted.

"This is going to be amazing. Like I trailered yesterday, even Gill's Mum gave a big Keannu-style whoa at a sequence between a car chase and a train. I can't give much in the way of details here, but watching some of the scenes from the book come to life can only be compared to giving birth to a 100 million dollar baby. The opening sequence with The Killer plus boyfriends chasing his would-be assassins across the rooftops is just jaw-dropping. I was honestly pinching myself, worried I was bi-polar and this whole thing was just a wishful hallucination."

"March 08 cannot get here fast enough. McAvoy, Freeman and the big star they aren't telling you about until Summer plus an action director this good really is going to be something special. Three months ago my expectations were zero. Now they're enormous."

Guesses on who this big star might be in the comments below. I'll get things started with Bruce Willis.
