The comic book Nemesis is yet one more comic book title from Mark Millar that is being set up to become a movie with Tony Scott directing, Scott Free to produce, over at Fox. (Note: Deadline New York reports that Scott Free is producing. I think they meant Scott Free Productions is producing… the production company that Tony and Ridley Scott created and are Co-Chairpersons of.)
Millar has some great titles under his belt that have made it to the silver screen: Wanted, Kick-Ass and War Heroes, which is under development with Columbia.
Nemesis is to evil, what Batman is to good. That’s the interesting premise behind the title. With Fox making a comic book movie based on a bad guy is definitely interesting.
Right now, no screenplay writer is associated, but once someone is, we’ll see how the creative team will be completed!
About Tony Scott
Tony Scott has been directing movies for quite some time. Some of the movies he’s directed have been quite memorable for myself.
- Top Gun (1986),
- True Romance (1993),
- Enemy of the State (1998),
- Man on Fire (2004),
- The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009),
- The A-Team (As Executive Producer).
His television Executive Producer credits include:
- The Good Wife
- The Pillars of the Earth
According to IMDb, he has 22 projects various stages of development or conjectured as in development. Amongst them, the Alien Prequel & maybe a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea remake.
As far as Mark Millar goes, aside from Kick-Ass, and War Heroes, he’s aligned with an untitled Superman movie, Wanted 3 & Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall.
