Comic-book writer Mark Miller’s time travelling adventure, Chrononauts, has been picked up by Universal for adaptation ahead of the first issue’s release next week. While there’s no news as to who will be penning the screen-play, Fast & Furious writer Chris Morgan is set to produce. Miller’s latest comic collaboration with artist Sean Gordon-Murphy tells the story of two ‘chrononauts’, Corbin and Danny, who are the first men to attempt a time travel experiment, here’s the official synopsis.
“Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly are two red-blooded American guys who also happen to be scientific geniuses. With the whole world watching, they embark on the world’s first time-travel experiment. But when their planned routine goes off-course, they’re left to fend for themselves – leading to an era-hopping adventure. From ancient Rome to the roaring twenties to the 1980s music scene, Corbin and Danny wreak havoc with the time stream, score front-row seats to the world’s wildest events, and get into hijinks with history’s scariest villains. But is it worth the price, when they have unresolved problems to address back home in the present day – and a team of angry bosses ready to do whatever it takes to rein them in”.
This isn’t the first time Miller’s work has been picked up for adaptation with his books Kick Ass, Wanted and most recently the knock-out hit Kingsman: The Secret Service. I really like the general premise for the story, it reminds me a little of the time travel episodes of Family Guy with Brian and Stewie and I’m very much ok with that. Keep an eye out for more news of this promising project!
