Jim Starlin’s Dreadstar Headed to the Big Screen

SuperHeroHype

Apr 04, 2014

A few years after creating the Mad Titan Thanos for Marvel, comic writer and artist Jim Starlin started his very own sci-fi epic titled Dreadstar and now Benderspink and Illuminati Entertainment have announced they've picked up the rights to the 1982 series to turn into a feature film.

"Apart from Star Wars, this was my favorite science fiction story growing up," J.C. Spink of Benderspink told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Dreadstar is one of the most important comics on the 1980s, paving the way for creators to control their own creations,” Illuminati’s Ford Lytle Gilmore said. “After decades of Jim exercising that control and turning away countless Hollywood suitors, I'm excited he's trusting me and J.C. to do it right."

The pair will produce the film which is currently on the lookout for a screenwriter before securing a distributor or financier.

Running for over sixty issues, Dreadstar tells the story of Vanth Dreadstar, the lone survivor of the obliterated Milky Way Galaxy who is caught in the middle of a longstanding war between two powerful empires with his band of misfits Syzygy Darklock, Willow and Oedi.
