Guardians of the Galaxy movie gets writers backing

The writers of the hit comic book Guardians of the Galaxy have given their backing to the planned movie adaptation by Marvel Studios. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, who are credited with creating the modern adaptation of the team, have both spoken about their joy at being chosen for the big screen.

Abnett explained to CBR, "The fact that Marvel has decided that that makes good sense for them to do, it's a huge compliment. We're very excited to see what happens, and we're very excited to see where they go with it. I think anybody - I don't care how devoted a Star-Lord or Rocket Raccoon fan you were even two years ago - who would have said that this would make a great main movie would have been laughed off.”

He continued, "It's such an unlikely thing to do. So I think it's lovely to work on something and expose its potential to the point where a company like Marvel will say, 'Yes, this makes sense'. We're very excited. It's very interesting to look at it happening."

Lanning added, "To actually use our cast to make a movie is fantastic. We've been on the record saying that as much as anybody, we're happy to sit back as fans and enjoy the ride. We hope it does this justice and do all the things this idea has the potential to achieve."

It is widely expected that James Gunn will be given the job of bringing the movie to life and Guardians of the Galaxy is currently scheduled to be released on August 1, 2014.
