Sylvester Stallone May Headline 20th Century Fox’s STARLIGHT

Sounds like another Mark Millar comic is headed to screens.

According to the folks over at Splash Report, 20th Century Fox is gearing up for another Mark Millar adaptation - this one based on Millar's sci-fi comic series Starlight - and they want Sylvester Stallone to headline the film. 

Here's how they're describing the plot:

The comic centers on Duke McQueen, a man who has long since settled down and left his days of saving the Universe and operating as the space hero everyone depended on—at least that’s what he thought. His wife long passed and his kids off embarking on their own adventures, Duke lives a quiet, solitary life until he receives an unexpected call from a distant world, calling him to action one last time.

At present, no director is attached to Starlight, but Splash Report notes that a script has been completed by Gary Whitta (Rogue One), and that X-Men's Simon Kinberg is onboard to produce. 

As for Stallone's involvement: this wouldn't be Sly's first foray into superhero territory. Back in 1995, Stallone starred in the wildly ill-advised Judge Dredd (how ill-advised? Rob Schneider is the comic relief), and the actor will also appear in next month's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

Nothing's been signed as of yet, but this'd be an interesting part for Stallone, and we're curious to see how this shakes out. Stay tuned for more on Starlight - and Stallone's potential involvement in it - as the updates roll in.
