James Gunn on Short List to DirectWhen Marvel Studios announced last month that they were gearing up for a movie starring the space-faring "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY", there were lots of fan discussions about who could possibly direct such a venture, a film that woud require action and humor as well as an ability to manage a huge amount of special FX.
Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, filmmaker James Gunn is being mentioned as one of Marvel's top choices to direct the movie, saying that they like his sensibilities and his ability to mix action and horror, something he shares with "THE AVENGERS" director Joss Whedon (who also wrote and produced the long-delayed "CABIN IN THE WOODS", released a month before the summer blockbuster).
Gunn previously directed the horror comedy "SLITHER" and the violent superhero comedy "SUPER", starring Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page, neither huge box office successes, but before that, he wrote the "DAWN OF THE DEAD" remake for Zack Snyder and the Warner Bros. live action "SCOOBY-DOO" and its sequel.
