James Gunn's brother claims that Disney will still be using his script for Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3
This is an interesting development.
Back in August James Gunn was fired as director of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 after old, offensive tweets were unearthed.
The tweets were posted in jest a number of years ago, but were described as "indefensible" by Disney.
Since then, rumours have gone back and forth as to whether or not Gunn would be rehired as director.
Disney have remained adamant that he will not have any part in the third movie in the Guardians series, but a recent interview with Gunn's brother has suggested that the new director will still use his original script.
According to comicbook.com, Gunn's brother, Sean, claims that the situation is very much still up in the air: "I don't really know yet what's going on with Guardians 3," Gunn said. "I know that Disney still wants to make the movie.
"I know that they have every intention of using the script that my brother wrote. Obviously, that was a very unfortunate situation for everybody, most of all him, but I am also somebody who had been preparing to spend half a year making that movie and now that's up in the air."
Sean Gunn played Kraglin in the Guardian movies, and also provides the movements for Rocket.
No release date is confirmed for the movie, largely due to the uncertainty of the situation, but it is expected to be released in 2019.
