Back in March, I reported that Scottish comic book writer Mark Millar was prepping another film adaptation of one of his original works. The title in question was Nemesis, which was a book that explored a twisted “What if Batman was The Joker?” thematic idea. At the time, based on the success of Kingsman: The Secret Service, the film looked to be a Go. What’s more, it was expected to be made by 20th Century Fox, who’d just had so much success with Kingsman

Tracking-Board is now reporting, though, that the former Fox production is now shifting over to a brand new home. Where? The home of DC’s Cinematic Universe: Warner Bros. Definitely an intriguing move, since the studio is knee-deep in developing films that include the actual characters that Millar riffed on in Nemesis– namely Batman, The Joker, and Jim Gordon. 

Regardless, Warner Bros wants to make the film, which was co-written and is expected to be directed by Joe Carnahan (The A-TeamThe Grey, and Smokin’ Aces).

No word yet on a release date, or casting. But we do know that Millar is in love with Carnahan’s script.
