Marvel Gets New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Scribe

Showcasing progress on the big space epic, Marvel Studios has reportedly hired a "three-Time black list" scribe to rewrite the original draft for Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Check it out



After last month's Comic-Con announcement that Guardians of the Guardians will expand the 2nd Phase of Marvel's cinematic universe, recent reports showcase progress leading up to its 2014 release, exactly two years from now. The studio has hired a new scribe to come aboard & rewrite the first draft penned by Nicole Periman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher McCoy, who has three scripts on a survey of top motion picture screenplays not yet produced, known as The Black List, will pen the Guardians of the Galaxy rewrite.

Despite three of McCoy's screenplays landing on The Black List - Get Back, Good Looking and Good Kids - Disney recently purchased another pitch from him involving a high-concept romantic comedy. Anyhow, THR further suggests that McCoy has been praised for having a "quirky comedic" element in his scripts. What do you think?



Marvel Studios has dubbed “Guardians of the Galaxy” a “big space epic” that will introduce various cosmic entities from the Marvel Comics universe. The superhero team first appeared in “Marvel Super-Heroes #18” in 1969, created by Arnold Drake & Gene Colan. In 2008, the team was rebooted by Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning in “Guardians of the Galaxy (vol. 2) #1.” The team's live-action roster will include Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot. And also Thanos, the villain who made his live-action debut unexpectedly during Marvel's The Avengers mid-credits stinger, is expected to reprise his role. With no director yet attached, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has scheduled “Guardians of the Galaxy” for release on August 1, 2014.
