Following Disney Firing, Rival Studios Are Eager to Hire James Gunn

Dave Bautista Will Drop Out Of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 If Marvel Passes On James Gunn's Script Dave Bautista says he'll quit Guardians Vol. 3 if Disney doesn't use James Gunn's script

This controversy can't be expected to evaporate if - and when - Gunn is hired by another studio, but it seems that some executives are prepared to deal with that for the sake of enlisting his talent.

The wrestler-turned-movie star, who portrays Drax the Destroyer in Disney's big screen adaptations of the Marvel comic books, has made it clear he is not happy that Gunn will no longer be in charge of the franchise, following his dismissal in July, when old tweets he sent joking about rape and paedophilia were unearthed by conservative critics.

As for the script itself, it's not hard to imagine why Disney would want to hold on to and utilize the work that James Gunn has already done for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Multiple studio executives are interested in working with Gunn, sources have told The Hollywood Reporter. All in all, he could end up netting between $7-$10 million, or possibly higher, while also being allowed to commit to another studio right away. One of the major studios includes Warner Bros., which has poached filmmakers from Marvel before to help shepherd its struggling DC Extended Universe. Dave Bautista, on the other hand, grew more irate with his comments each passing day, ultimately claiming that he would subject himself to any legal ramifications imposed by Disney by leaving the film if they didn't use Gunn's script.

While the new report states Gunn's script for the film will still be used and offers hope that Gunn could return to take on a different project at Marvel, the mouse house is reportedly unlikely to reinstate Gunn for the third film in the series. Is it because of Gunn's complicated exit negotiations?

The cast of the film has shared their support of Gunn in the situation, though they were careful not to pose any threats about their involvement with the upcoming film. One source noted, "An end-all verdict hasn't been issued and conversations with Marvel are still ongoing".
