Marvel is picking up business on the next major movie in its phase 3 projects with directors being auditioned to helm ‘Doctor Strange’…
The Marvel machine never slows down these days and just days after the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer landed, the studio is taking interviews with directors for their next major film franchise — Doctor Strange.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the choices have been slimmed down to at least four possible candidates with all of them either having already met with Marvel or have meetings scheduled in the coming days.
“Mark Andrews, who co-wrote and co-directed Pixar’s Brave; Nikolaj Arcel, who wrote and directed last year’s best foreign film Oscar-nominated entry A Royal Affair; Dean Israelite, the helmer behind Paramount’s upcoming sci-fi time-travel movie Welcome to Yesterday; and Jonathan Levine, the filmmaker behind Warm Bodies and 50/50.
The report also states that Marvel wants to hire writers to work on the film at the same time as bringing on a director for the project. Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger, who penned the script for Kung-Fu Panda are apparently in the running to land script duties, but nothing has been offered from Marvel as of yet.
There is no set time table on a production or release schedule for Doctor Strange as of yet.
