Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden Out Of The Running For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY?
While James Gunn is reportedly the favourite to helm Guardians of the Galaxy for Marvel Studios, a new report reveals that other candidates - who would be selected if talks with Gunn don't work out - Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden are no longer in the running.
Following reports yesterday evening that James Gunn (Super) is in late stage talks with Marvel Studios to direct 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, it was also revealed that Peyton Reed (Yes Man) and directing duo Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden (Half Nelson) were being considered by the studio should talks with Gunn not work out. Well, it appears as if we can now cross the latter two off the list as The Playlist reports that their reps have told them their involvement with the big screen adaptation is untrue. This seems odd, especially as the most we get is a "No Comment" in similar circumstances. Perhaps they're trying to save face as they weren't chosen to direct the film? Either way, James Gunn has been a little more forthcoming, teasing fans via his Twitter account, only to later delete those Tweets. Stay tuned! Guardians of the Galaxy will be released on August 1st, 2014.
