Hey lads and lasses,
Woke up to everything from Yahoo to IGN talking about the Nemesis movie and though the story is a little premature I thought it might be an idea to give you a little update and let you know where we are.
As some of you know, this was a project I wrote six years ago and sold to Tony Scott, who’s deal was at Fox. Scott Free remain producers on the property, Ridley assuming control of the property, but the option expired at Fox around six months ago and we’ve been talking to other studios since. The executive at Fox who bought this has since moved to Warner Brothers and he’s a really good guy, who’s very passionate about the project. They made an offer a few months back and we’re still working out the final details, but co-owner Steve McNiven and I are very happy with the possibility of this at WB and love the enthusiasm they have for the project.
The Tracking Board, as always, totally on the money with this story, but it’s still a little soon for us to really talk about it as final paperwork still to be signed. A proper release will go out if and when everything signed off.
As regards our other projects, Starlight, Superior, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kindergarten Heroes are all still at Fox, the Starlight and Superior screenplays both now done and dusted and looking amazing, directors being sought for both right now. Jupiter’s Legacy is with Lorenzo DiBonaventura and Chrononauts is being written over at Universal, produced by the F7 team. Millarworld’s upcoming new project Huck, released in November, will have some news we can talk about soon, but I’m trying to build bases across the entire studio system for these Millarworld properties and Huck will be somewhere we haven’t been before.
More as it happens.
