Joss Whedon Endorses Guardians of the Galaxy Director James Gunn
Joss Whedon was recently interviewed by MTV news about his upcoming indie film, "Much Ado About Nothing", and they had a chance to ask him about James Gunn joining the "Guardians of the Galaxy" film.
Whedon said that he feels Gunn will make the project come together, something he wasn't sure of before.
"James is what makes me think it will work. I myself was sort of like, ‘Well, I liked Rocket Raccoon as a kid, but I'm not sure how that plays [to a wider audience].' He [Gunn] is so off the wall, and so crazy, but so smart, such a craftsman and he builds from heart. He's got a very twisted take on it, but it all comes from a real love for the material. It's going to be hard for the humans to keep up… I know he's going to come from left field and I'm going to go, ‘What?' And then, ‘Of course, why didn't I think of that?' And then I'm going to beat him!"
"Guardians of the Galaxy" is slated for a August 2014 release. Countdown to the release of The Guardians of the Galaxy, with the iPhone Movie Countdown Clock App.
