James Gunn Won't Be Rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

James Gunn Won't Be Rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”

According to Variety, Disney and Marvel have chose to firmly stand by their decision to not rehire Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn back for the third installment. The decision came following a meeting between Gunn and studio chairman Alan Horn.

Glenn Close gave some quick comments recently about Disney firing director James Gunn from his latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The entertainment conglomerate surprised many July 20 when it fired Gunn from the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel after years-old offensive tweets about rape and pedophilia made by the filmmaker were unearthed by some of his right-wing detractors. The decision was made as they were believed to be "unacceptable" in the time of #MeToo and weren't part of Disney's family-friendly image.

Sources told Variety that Horn met Gunn as a "a courtesy to clear the air" after he and his representatives tried to get him rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, on the back of support from the entire cast, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, and brother Sean Gunn, in the form of an online open letter.

"Though the meeting was described as civil and professional, sources say that Horn stood by his decision to not reinstate Gunn as director".

Since Disney announced the sacking of Gunn there has been a huge upsurge of positive support from both fans and people in the industry including the cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

MCU boss Kevin Feige was reportedly out of town and not in that meeting but Variety's sources have suggested that the search for a new director will begin as soon as he's back.

"Regardless of how much time has passed, I understand and accept the business decisions taken today". It is still unknown if the production schedule will be affected by the change in the director's seat. The report does say that Disney is meant to use Gunn's completed Guardians 3 script, though the sources do say that a new director may just want to polish that script a little by themselves before filming which is still set for 2019.
