London, May 18 (ANI): Star Wars actor Mark Hamill is aiming to make a new live action film, which will be adapted from his own comic.
The 58-year-old, who played Luke Skywalker in three of George Lucas”s movies, is to bring to life his comic book mini-series ‘The Black Pearl’.
The announcement of the 5-million-pound project was made at the Cannes Film Festival.
Hamill, who is known for TV roles and voiceovers since his Star Wars days, originally planned to release the story as a movie, but ended up publishing it as a comic book.
An ardent comic fan, he has also made a documentary Comic Book: The Movie, as well as voicing comic characters such as The Joker in computer games.
In Black Pearl, a loner raised on violent films and comics takes justice into his own hands after a neighbour is kidnapped.
“It”s a dark and raw suspense thriller, a prowling de-glamorisation of the usual mega-budget Hollywood revenge fantasy with an edgy, real-world documentary style,” The Mirror quoted him as saying. (ANI)
