This makes my day. James Gunn, who is just completely awesome, is now officially attached to write and direct Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Gunn was also the writer and director of on of my favorite horror films, the amazingly funny Slither starring Captain Tightpants himself, Nathan Fillion.
Gunn was also responsible for the live action Scooby Doo movie (which was actually really good – if you haven’t seen it because it’s a “kid’s movie”, I highly recommend watching it), its less well known sequel, and the over the top video game, Lolipop Chainsaw. With him at the helm, I am really less worried about GotG being good. He’s got the sense of humor that the Guardians require in a writer and director.
