Guardians of the Galaxy

Recommended Posts

Chris McCoy is being tapped to rewrite Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Studios’ space adventure movie.

While he has yet to achieve a produced credit, McCoy is considered to have a lot of heat as a writer. The scribe has had three of his specs land on the Black List: Get Back in 2007, Good Looking in 2009 and Good Kids in 2011. His scripts have been praised for their quirky comedic bent.

Quirky comedic bent is exactly what this movie needs. It's got a raccoon with guns .

Last month, news broke of a short list of five actors in contention for the leading role of Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in James Gunn's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. Today, Variety offers an update that claims the list has shrunk to two names: Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas) and Zachary Levi ("Chuck").

Levi, who is already set to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe as Fandral in the upcoming Thor: The Dark World, did not appear on the original short list.

Quite arguably Marvel Studios' most offbeat property to date, Guardians of the Galaxy's roster is also said to include Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Racoon and Gamora. Check back for casting details on those roles as they emerge.

Sturgess has movie star written all over him, and whilst I've nothing against Levi I think it's fairly important to get someone who is principally a movie star rather than a TV star.

You can't tell it from the last couple of episodes of Parks and Rec but yeah, guy definitely went on a diet for Zero Black Thirty.

I think he went on the Hollywood HGH diet.

But they're the Guardians of THIS one surely?

Andy should be awesome in the role if I can see past his role as Andy. I might spend the entire movie watching Bert Macklin- Space Adventurer.
