Disney not Hiring James Gunn to Direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3
Disney does not repent its decision to expel director James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 – “Variety Shows” says that the previous negotiations between Disney and Marvel have had a result. Guen and his brokerage firm UTA are actively striving for a second chance, yet Disney and Marvel have made the final decision after conferring with him: insisting on expelling him and not hiring him again to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3.
Chairman of The Walt Disney Company Alan Horne insisted on this practice. Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel, did not participate in the negotiations yet he agreed not to hire him despite previous words indicating his intention to employ Guen again.
News this time rules out the possibility of his directing the Galaxy Vol.3. As for the script and other issues, the report does not mention the result of their discussion.
The previous situation: Some of the old Twitter of the director of Guardians of the Galaxy were found, in which he boldly joked about Pedophilia and rape. Disney instantly announced to expel him from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 and relieved collaborations with him. The incident aroused great controversies. The cast of Guardians of the Galaxy, however, expressed their support for Guen. His sudden departure made the series in jeopardy. “Drax” Dave Batista even said that he would withdraw from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 if the film did not follow the script that Guen had written. Marvel had wished to quicken the shooting of the film, yet it encounters a big obstacle now. There is also news that a number of other Hollywood companies had the intention of hiring him after he was expelled from Disney.
