Noah Hawley's DOCTOR DOOM Has A Finished Script But The Fox/Disney Merger Puts The Film At Risk

With Legion showrunner Noah Hawley set to direct, Fox's solo Doctor Doom film has caused a lot of excitement among fans. But will the Disney/Fox merger stop the project despite it having a finished script?

It's been nearly a full year since we first learned that Fox was developing a solo Doctor Doom movie with Legion showrunner Noah Hawley set to write and direct. Now, after all this time, Hawley has revealed there is a complete script for the film.

“I wrote a script that I really like and the studio really likes,” the Fargo showrunner told Vulture, before revealing whether he thinks the script is the best it can be. “It needs a little work.”

In spite of his desire to continue fine-tuning the screenplay, the Doctor Doom film will have to be put on hold as Hawley is currently working on his astronaut drama Pale Blue Dot, which will star Legion actor Jon Hamm. However, the biggest potential obstacle is the looming merger of Fox and Disney, which may very will bring an end to the director’s prospects.


“I know there’s also a little uncertainty, given the potential for a Disney merger and the fact that Marvel may regain control of X-Men and Fantastic Four. They may have a plan of their own in a desk drawer. I just don’t know. So, I think there’s sort of a sense of uncertainty.”

Despite this, the creative mind behind FX’s Legion remains optimistic, as he states, “I think the studio would like to make it.”

So, it seems clear that Noah Hawley has no intention of stopping work on the film until the studio officially declares the project dead - be it Fox or Disney making that decision.
