Disney rehires James Gunn to direct 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'

Disney rehires James Gunn to direct 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'

Deadline's report indicated that Gunn's apology played a big role in Disney's decision to bring him back for Guardians 3.

Gunn, who wrote and directed the first two Guardians of the Galaxy to great accolades, was sacked from the third film in July.

But much of the "Guardians" cast signed an open letter a year ago seeking Gunn's rehiring; Dave Bautista, who plays Drax, was especially vocal in his support of Gunn, as a #WeAreGroot campaign gained traction. Gunn was sacked from the film last July over lewd tweets he posted several years ago.

But Deadline reported Friday that Gunn has been reinstated by Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn, who was reportedly impressed with how the director handled himself after he was canned. I have been, and continue to be incredibly humbled by your love and support. All I can do now, beyond offering my honest and heartfelt regret, is to be the best human being I can be: accepting, understanding, committed to equality, and far more thoughtful about my public statements and my obligations to our public discourse.

Gunn was sacked by the Mouse House last summer after a series of controversial old tweets from the filmmaker surfaced. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. "At the end of the day, he was making jokes and he was being provocative and he was looking for that shock value, but they were just jokes". Gunn also apologized, saying he was a different person when he wrote the tweets in question. "Love you to you all". It does seem likely that Gunn would direct "Suicide Squad 2" first, however. Deadline reports he will still direct the rival Warner Bros. feature now scheduled for an August 6, 2021 release before returning to the Guardians franchise.

"I will be helping to plant the seeds that will lead to the next decade", Gunn said. Who knows what's going to happen in Avengers: Endgame?

Stars from the first two films in the franchise had openly supported Gunn after his dismissal, including Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel and Dave Bautista.
