Mark Millar clearly adores children, in all their c-word-spewing cuteness. So it comes as little surprise that the comics scribe and Kick-Ass creator has another kid-starring project headed to the big screen: Kindergarten Heroes. As reported by Deadline, Millar's picture-book collaboration with artist Curtis Tiegs (SPOILER ALERT: It has to do with superheroes who are also kindergarteners) has been picked up by Fox, based on a pitch by screenwriter Carter Blanchard.
The news comes on the heels of this summer's announcement that Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn has signed on to helm Secret Service, an adaptation of the graphic novel Millar created with Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons.
