Tony Scott "Going After" Johnny Depp And Brad Pitt For Nemesis!
According to the comics creator Mark Millar, the director of the adaptation is pursuing both Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt for the title role as the villainous Nemesis...
While promoting his new magazine "CLiNT" on today’s Richard Bacon show on BBC Radio Five Live, the comic book writer revealed that the two actors he recently said would be perfect for the role of Nemesis are now going to be offered the role by the movies director! Here is an excerpt from the report over at Bleeding Cool.
Before a news break, Richard Bacon put it to Millar that the film of Nemesis will star Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. His response:
"That’s who the director’s going after, yeah."
Eventually, they came back around to discussing the film again. Millar said:
"Tony Scott, brother of Ridley Scott...I just got a call from him, literally about a month ago...it was one of those very surreal things. This is a $150 million budget...he said "Who do you fancy for it?"...I said "I dunno, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp" so he said "That’s good, we’ll give them a call".
What do you think about these actors potentially being cast as Nemesis? Could one of them really end up taking the role or is Mark Millar once again jumping the gun as he did with his claims of writing the X-Men 4 script? Share your thoughts in the usual place!
