James Gunn Will Write, Direct ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Sequel
http://www.thewrap.com/james-gunn-will- ... xy-sequel/Comic-Con 2014: The original writer of ‘Guardians’ tells TheWrap that Gunn will make the sequel
James Gunn will write and direct the sequel to “Guardians of the Galaxy,” his co-writer Nicole Perlman told TheWrap.
The positive buzz enveloping the movie, due out next week, has spawned frequent chatter about a sequel. Marvel has not officially announced one, though it may at its Comic-Con panel Saturday. Representatives for Marvel did not offer any comment.
Gunn has told people that he would like to make a sequel, but it depends on how the movie fares at the box office. Advanced tracking projects it will gross at least $60 million over its opening weekend — and others are even more bullish. IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond went out of his way this week to say the movie would overperform.
