Supercrooks Director Nacho Vigalondo at Kapow!
Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes) described at Kapow! how he was working with Supercrooks comic creator Mark Millar on the film version of what has been described as a supervillain version of Ocean’s 11 set in Europe.
“Well, we are in the worst part of the whole film making process which is waiting. We spent almost a year working on the script and on different drafts, going back and forth trading emails with the production company and everything. I had this lucky chance of writing with Mark and so I feel like, it’s a strange feeling, because at the same time I feel like a lot has happened, but at the same time I’m so deep in the project because I’ve been writing all the sequences, all the dialogue with the creator of the comic book. He was so nice to me that he decided to include me as a co-plotter in the comic book because of the kind of ideas we were drafting for the movie. I feel really honoured. I’ve been a big fan of Mark’s since the ’90s and since the very first comic books from Mark which were edited in Spain. I’m a fan.”
