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.
