Producer Extraordinaire Lorenzo di Bonaventura Wants To Bring JUPITER's LEGACY To TV

Lorenzo di Bonaventura has revealed that he's currently working on finding a studio for Mark Millar & Frank Quitely's 2013 limited Image series, Jupiter's Legacy which he thinks is better suited for TV.

In April 2015, it was revealed that Lorenzo di Bonaventura  was working on finding  a home for Millar and Quitley's limited series, Jupiter's Legacy.  While doing press for Deepwater Horizon, he provided an update on the project, revealing that he thinks its actually better suited for television.  

Talking to THR, Bonventure stated, "I have a project with Mark Millar, who wrote [the comic that became] Kingsman: The Secret Service, that is a superhero project: Jupiter's Legacy. What attracted me to it was it's not repeating what everybody else has done. It's not yet set up at a studio. Its universe is so expansive that it's, in some ways, more conducive to a television treatment. I'm doing it either way."

The comic takes a realistic approach to superheroes and looks at how  Millennial super-powered beings would deal with standing in the shadow of their parents while striving to make their own mark in a world saturated by pop culture and social media .

Last June, it was revealed that  Brian and Mark Gunn were working on the screenplay.
