Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is really glad Hollywood shot down his idea for a Hitman movie


James Gunn has had a very stable run over the previous decade, highlighted by the hit Guardians of the Galaxy films, which he co-wrote and directed. Recently on Twitter he revealed that the first GotG was this near not occurring because it did, as a result of Gunn wished to do a Hitman movie as a substitute.

“Weeks before I got Guardians I pitched a Hitman movie,” Gunn tweeted (opens in new tab). “The studio really wanted to hire me, but a producer on the project did not. I was bummed then, but thank God, because I would have never been able to do GotG if they had said yes!”
