Mark Millar is best known for writing hyper violent and adult themed comics like Kick Ass and Wanted, but his kid friendly Kindergarten Heroes will be heading to the big screen as well. 20th Century Fox is planning on producing a live action version of Kindergarten Heroes. Carter Blanchard is set to write the script for the first film in what is hoped to be a family-friendly franchise.

Per Heat Vision, Millar’s Kindergarten Heroes has yet to be published, but a number of issues are in the works.  Here’s the status of Kindergarten Heroes in the words of Millar himself:

“Curt [Tiegs, artist and co-owner of the property] and I finished it a year and a half ago or more, but we’re working on sequels and will release once we have at least a couple more books. We’d like to launch a bunch of these at the same time and have a little set kids can buy when they pick up the first one.”

So while Millar and Tiegs are prepping to launch more issues, Blanchard is at work adapting the first one.  Sounds like a concerted effort to make sure the source issues are out in the marketplace in case the first film is a hit so future film adaptations can follow suit.  Simon Kinberg, who will rewrite the Fantastic Four reboot on which Millar is a consultant, will produce Kindergarten Heroes.
