Director Vigalondo Rumored to Helm Millar's 'Supercrooks' Film

Wait—but Supercrooks doesn’t come out until the end of the year!

Bleeding Cool is reporting that Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo has been hired to direct Mark Millar’s as yet unpublished supervillain crime caper Supercrooks. Announced at Millar’s Kapow Comic Con this April, Supercrooks is the story of a group of supervillains who have had it with trying to live a life of crime in the States. With all the superheroes flying around it must be hard to lead an opulent lifestyle made up of other people’s hard earned dough.

“So [the villains] leave America and head over to Europe, where there are no superheroes,” said Millar to Comic Book Resources, “and it's like 'Ocean's Eleven' meets the 'X-Men' where seven supervillains head to Europe to pull the biggest job of their career where there are no supervillains to stop them. So it's a fun heist story."
There’s no word yet on a start date for the Supercrooks film or when the film is scheduled for release.
