With James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” upon us next week and with the spin-off “Peacemaker” series having wrapped filming, Gunn isn’t taking much of a break and has reportedly locked in filming dates for Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”.
Gunn was committed to a third ‘Guardians’ years ago but social media controversy saw that film being put on hold for a few years. Speaking with Collider this week, he confirmed that despite the time that has passed, the script has been near completion since about a year after the last film opened back in 2017:
“It’s basically been finished for years. I keep fiddling with different things and adding things, and figuring out permutations and stuff – I’m in the middle of doing another draft now – but it’s really small stuff in comparison to what it has been. Its basically been finished since three years ago.”
Filming on the new ‘Guardians’ is set to begin in Atlanta this November. All that’s known
