James Gunn to Write, Direct ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Sequel

James Gunn to Write, Direct 'Guardians

Guardians of the Galaxy” doesn’t land in theaters until Aug. 1, but Marvel Studios already is moving forward with a sequel and has turned to James Gunn to return to write and direct.

A sequel already was expected, considering their return appears on screen in the end credits of the film.

It’s unclear whether Nicole Perlman, who co-wrote the first “Guardians” with Gunn, will return.

“Guardians” is Marvel Studios’ 10th film since starting to self finance its own projects in 2008, with “Iron Man.”

The Disney-owned studio already has dated a slate of new untitled films through 2019.

Marvel did not comment.

Gunn’s role on the sequel was first reported by The Wrap at Comic-Con in San Diego.
