Tony Scott to Direct Millar's Nemesis Movie
Cool ran the scoop first and it’s been confirmed by Deadline. I’ll give it to Millar, this guy is getting things done. When he was talking about NEMESIS already being in the pipeline as a movie, I was a little skeptical and, after this, I’m pretty sure he isn’t kidding about what he’s been saying that Matthew Vaughn already trying to get SUPERIOR off the ground as a movie. The man knows how to promote himself and get his work out there.
Man… having Tony Scott direct a super-hero movie would be really wild. I can’t even picture his kinetic, heavy coverage style used for this kind of outlandish carnage. Sure, outlandish carnage is his trademark, but all of his movies have been more-or-less set in the real world so far. Anyway, if you somehow aren’t familiar with Tony Scott’s filmographies, he’s directing some a slew of memorable action movies like TOP GUN, THE LAST BOY SCOUT, MAN ON FIRE and ENEMY OF THE STATE. == TEASER ==
I wonder if this’ll give Millar’s brother’s sky-diving-as-Nemesis stunt even more attention. Maybe he ought to wait to jump until this project’s closer to being off the ground.
Anyway, what do you Comic Vine maniacs think about this? Are you stoked to see a NEMESIS movie? What do you think of Tony Scott directing it?

eh, he'll make the scenes way too long and overly dramatic, using a ton of different camera angles. And above all else he loves using Denzel Washington, so i wont be surprised to see him as Nemsis. if you ask me, i really dont think Tony Scott should direct this movie, it's way too epic for him to handle.
If Tony Scott is directing a movie based on it, then Mark Millar just sold his comic book to me.
I am a longtime Tony Scott fanatic. I'm kind of sad to see that you didn't mention some of his other films like True Romance and Domino, both of which played a ton with film stocks and frame shots. Domino was especially great, as he overdeveloped the film stock in order to give it this acid trip type of look. Crimson Tide was another great flick, but one of my absolute favorites is Spy Game. Brad Pitt and Robert Redford were f#$!ing AMAZING in that flick, and the story as a whole was well done. However, the movie wouldn't have been nearly as slick if Tony hadn't been behind the camera.
He and Ridley are also the only directors that can make a movie where I like seeing Denzel Washington in the film.
" Seriously? What is it about Millar's stuff that makes people want to turn it into a movie before it's even finished? Superior's first issue is still a ways from dropping and they're talking about a movie? "His style can easily be adapted to movies, he has kind of a movie way of telling his stories
This wont be anything like Kick-Ass. Tony Scott will edit the absolute freakin' crap out of this thing so the viewer HAS NO IDEA WHAT IS HAPPENING. Just in case you might be able to follow what's going on he'll digitally color code the thing all to hell for good measure so it looks like a million color wheels were puked into a giant bucket. Millar is already at his worst when he has too much freedom. He has an ego the size of Alaska. The first issue of Nemesis (which I actually liked) had an afterward written by Millar that took longer to read than the comic and was only about how awesome he is and blah blah blah.
The movie is going to blow just like Kick-Ass. They'll change it all up (even though we all haven't even read it all) dumb it down for the average movie goer, and maybe make it PG-13 HAHA!I can't wait I'll support Marvel even if it sucks those bastards!
Well kids, here's a good lesson for you. Write derivative juvenile tosh without an ounce of originality and you too can have it made into a hollywood movie with a respected director at the helm.
Not that I'm bitter, you understand.
I find it hard to like anything Millar writes and nothing he has done in the past few years has appealed to me in any way.
Its all well and good to take an established character, alter the looks, background and personality and call it your own but Millar seems unable to make his creations interesting and/or likeable.
