That’s right, Marvel think they’ve found their man to direct the impending Guardians of the Galaxy movie and that man is James Gunn! Check it out!
If you hadn’t already guessed, I love The Guardians of the Galaxy comic book and am looking forward to the movie more than any other. Yes, including the Avengers sequel.
Why? Well, the characters are awesome and the plot synopsis I revealed just last week makes the movie sound Farscape-esque – considering that’s my favourite sci-fi show of all time, it’s certainly a most welcome bonus.
Hell, I like it that much I’ve even created it’s very own info hub. Check it out – it’s got each and every single post I have related to the movie all combined in the same place, as well as a comprehensove reading list you might want browse through in preparation for the movie’s 2014 arrival. You can right The Guardians of the Galaxy Info Hub right here, in case you were wondering.
The writers have already written the script to the movie. It’s thought to be awesome. The plot synopsis has been revealed and it sounds like the movie is going to be fantastical. Now they’re talking directors and the name at the front of the pack is Super and Slither director, James Gunn. This movie just gets better and better each and every day!
Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision say “Marvel is said to like Gunn’s sensibility and his ability to mix comedy elements with action and horror, a quality he shares with The Avengers director Joss Whedon…”
Can’t argue there. From his films I’ve seen, I’ve been very impressed with the final results.
Hollywood Reporter also state that the studio is in talks with other directors to take on the role should Gunn pass up the opportuniy, including Peyton Reed (Bring it On/Yes Man), Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.
Do you think Gunn is the man to direct The Guardians of the Galaxy? Do you like any of the directors on the shortlist? If not, who would you choose? Please let me know what you think in the comments section below – it’d be awesome to hear your opinion on the matter!
