This isn’t the first time that Millar’s work has graced the silver screen, with Kick-Ass, Wanted and this year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service all being adapted from the pages of his previous comic books. Chrononauts was created by Millar, In collaboration with Sena Gordon Murphy who brought us “Punk Rock Jesus”. Millar describes the series as “Apollo 13 meets The Time Machine.” –

Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly are two buddies who love to have fun. They’re also scientific geniuses. When their research leads them to a time-traveling adventure, will they use their knowledge for the good of all mankind? Or use the space-time continuum for their own ends? Chrononauts is the story of man’s first, televised steps through the time-stream and and everything going wrong in the process.

No word on a release date yet but it’s said that Millar and Murphy will produce alongside Fast and Furious writer Chris Morgan.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
