Mark Millar's "Empress" Heading To The Big Screen

THR is reporting Mark Millar 's " Empress" will becoming to the big screen soon. The comic, co-created and drawn by Stuart Immonen, centers on the wife of a galactic dictator (a la Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon) who makes the decision to leave her evil husband and take her three kids with her. With the aid of a bodyguard, she escapes with her brood — Aine, her 15-year-old daughter who wants to be with her father; Adam, her gentle soul of a 10-year-old son who she knows would not survive the trials ahead to be an elite ruler; and Puck, her 18-month-old — to her home world. But the dictator husband, with armies at his disposal, isn’t going to let her go without a fight. F. Scott Frazier, who wrote the script for  xXx: The Return of Xander Cage , the Vin Diesel action vehicle currently in production, has been tapped to pen the script for Empress. The first issue, published by Marvel’s creator-owned Icon imprint, was a sell-out when it debuted in April. Issue
