CAPTAIN MARVEL Finds Its Directors In MISSISSIPPI GRIND Helmers Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck
Hot on the heels of yesterday's news drop, Variety is reporting that Captain Marvel, which will star Academy Award-winner Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island) as Carol Danvers, has finally found its director (well, directors) in Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
Marvel has enlisted Mississippi Grind helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct their upcoming Captain Marvel solo feature, which will star Brie Larson in the lead role. Come take a look!
It's been well-documented that Marvel Studios had been thoroughly vetting a number of candidates over the past few months, but they were reluctant to make a final call on who should take the helm until they felt the script was in the right place. Well, with this announcement, it looks like screenwriters Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) & Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) may be approaching the finish line with their script.
Production is expected to begin January 2018.
Boden and Fleck are best known for their work on critically acclaimed character studies like Half Nelson, a film that earned Ryan Gosling his first Academy Award nomination, and Mississippi Grind, which starred Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Ben Mendelsohn (Ready Player One). They've also written and directed It's Kind of a Funny Story and Sugar and have directed episodes of The Affair and Billions.
