Star Wars actor takes to the director’s chair

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill  will helm a feature film adaptation of his own comic book, The Black Pearl.


Published in 1996, the comic series is a satirical violent crime thriller that includes elements of tabloid journalism.

He said his goal is “to make a movie the studios wouldn’t make”.


The adaptation would mark Hamill’s feature directorial debut.
