BARBARIAN Director Hopes His Dream BATMAN Project Could Become A Reality Under New DCU Leadership

Barbarian director Zach Cregger recently revealed that he's written a "Batman-adjacent" script, and with James Gunn and Peter Safran now in charge of the DCU, he'd love to see it become a reality...

The terrifyingly twisted Barbarian was a massive hit with fright-fans (if you haven't seen it, it's... quite something), and writer/director Zach Cregger is sure to be inundated with offers to helm more horror projects in the coming months.

However, it seems the filmmaker is actually more excited by the prospect of working in the comic book movie genre.

While appearing on Bloody Disgusting's podcast, Cregger revealed that he has completed a "Batman- adjacent" script, and would love the opportunity to develop it for the screen.

"The thing I'd love to do next... I've actually written a movie that takes place in the DC Universe. Which is so not normally my thing; I'm not a superhero guy - I just couldn't stop thinking about this one story that kind of takes place in a Batman-adjacent thing. And so I wrote it, and I'm utterly obsessed with it."

Cregger didn't share any specifics on his story, but during a more recent interview with Discussing Film, he described the script as the "best thing I've ever written," and addressed the likelihood of it being brought to the attention of DC Studios now that James Gunn and Peter Safran are in charge.

"If I got the call, I would drop everything and go make that movie in a heartbeat," he said. "It’s my favorite thing I’ve ever written. I love it, and I’m dying to make it. I have not talked to James Gunn in my whole life. I don’t know him but I would certainly love to meet him and have the conversation. Who knows man?"

Gunn has already heaped praise upon Barbarian, so if he was to be made aware of this script, who knows? It'd be nice to learn a little more about this Dark Knight-related tale, so here's hoping Cregger divulges a few more details at some point.
