NEMESIS Is Finally Happening As Warner Bros. Put It Into Active Development

NEMESIS Is Finally Happening As Warner Bros. Put It Into Active Development

Nemesis has seemingly been stuck in development hell for years now, but after being stuck in limbo at 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. have now acquired the Mark Millar/Steve McNiven series and put it into active development. Who's directing? Hit the jump for further details...

At this point, a number of Mark Millar's creator owned comic books have been successfully brought to the big screen, with pretty much every other single one he's written also in various stages of development. One of the best - Nemesis - still hasn't been adapted, though the sad death of original director Tony Scott had at least something to do with that. Since then, The Grey director Joe Carnahan has rewritten the screenplay with his brother Matthew Michael Carnahan, and the former is now confirmed to direct (he was also attached to helm Nemesis when it was at Fox). 

While it had been at 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. are now developing the project with Scott Free. It's a little strange to see the movie at the studio considering their ties to DC Comics because Nemesis was actually published through Marvel's Icon imprint in 2010. "Nemesis follows the devious exploits of billionaire genius Matt Anderson. Deemed the world’s greatest fighter, Anderson is hell-bent on avenging the death of his parents, who were notorious villains themselves. Traveling the world as a costumed menace, killing cops and toppling order, Anderson returns to Washington to kickstart a campaign of terror against the police chief who captured his parents, all building up to a tremendously bloody finale." Are you looking forward to finally seeing this become a movie? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts on this news below.
