Work Underway On Nemesis Movie Screenplay By Joe And Matthew Michael Carnahan

There’s progress being made on the big screen adaptation of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven‘s comic series Nemesis, with Joe Carnahan yesterday tweeting:

His brother is Matthew Michael Carnahan, the screenwriter of The Kingdom, State of Play and some of some iteration of World War Z. I like to think they’ll be batting ideas for the Nemesis screenplay back and forth over their Turkey today. They certainly don’t seem to be the shy kind, as you can tell from this subsequent tweet from Joe:

Nemesis was the strip advertised with that ‘What if Batman was the Joker?’ line, and revolves around the murderous rampage of a ‘supervillain’ with an alter ego. Joe Carnahan has been attached to direct for a while, though the late Tony Scott was the first to take up the project.

Mark Millar, of course, made note of the new development on his own Twitter feed:

And it was also the perfect opportunity to remind us that more movies are on the way:

Matthew Vaughn’s The Secret Service is one of them, but the other two? Superior? American Jesus? Wanted 2?

I don’t think even Millar is holding out hope for an American Jesus movie any longer…
