Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 production has been halted! James Gunn Fired



Production of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been halted, The Hollywood Reporter reported. This comes a month after firing of James Gunn, who wrote and directed the first two movies of the franchise.

Why was James Gunn Fired?

The cast of the movie is free to indulge in other projects means the hold is for an indefinite amount of time. Though the move is being described as “temporary,” there are no reports as to when the pre-production will commence.

Gunn is reportedly still a part of the movie as a writer but Disney has not been able to find a new director. Gunn was fired after his offensive tweets from ten years earlier resurfaced in the media. He publicly apologized for the tweets where he joked about pedophilia and molestation. In late last month, the cast of the movie had issued an open letter supporting the director.

The first and second Guardians movie banked over $773 million and $863 million respectively. Let’s hope that Disney will not take the Guardians to the middle of “Knowhere.”
