“Kirby” in ARGO movie

Not sure how much Kirby will be involved, but Ben Affleck is directing a movie called ARGO, about the 1979 CIA mission to rescue some people in Iran that used a fake movie production, based on the real movie proposal for an adaptation of Roger Zelazny’s LORD OF LIGHT for which Jack Kirby did several spectacular designs, inked by Mike Royer.  According to the IMDB entry for the movie, the role of Jack Kirby is being played by Michael Parks. The movie is scheduled to come out in September of 2012, so we’ll see then how big a role Kirby has in the story and if any of his actual designs appear in the movie.
