ZATANNA Movie Writer Emerald Fennell Has Finished Writing NEMESIS Screenplay According To Mark Millar

A Nemesis movie has been in the works for what feels like forever, and Mark Millar has now confirmed that Promising Young Woman director Emerald Fennell has finished penning the screenplay for the project.

Last September, we learned that Project Power directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman had signed up to direct the Nemesis movie based on Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's controversial series. It was also mentioned that Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) was writing the screenplay, and the Kick-Ass scribe has now shared an update. 

"Emerald Fennell, who just won an Oscar for best screenplay for Promising Young Woman, has just delivered the latest draft of the Nemesis screenplay," Millar told Forbidden Planet TV, "which is extremely cool, especially after the initial development of the movie by the late Tony Scott, who established some amazing visual ideas for the movie!"

Fennell has also been tapped to write Zatanna for Warner Bros., so she has some comic book credentials.

However, a logline revealed last year confirmed that this take will have little in common with the source material as it's set to follow a genius engineer who witnesses the President of the United States commit a deadly crime. He then teams up with a vigilante to take down the President and his corrupt government.

In Millar's story, Nemesis basically had all of Batman's resources with The Joker's personality and went on a mission that saw him wreak havoc across the globe, matching wits with a police detective and committing a series of heinous crimes. 

Last year, the writer took to social media to say, "I'm at Netflix [and] not involved, but they seem to be doing very much their own thing with it." It seems he's happy with Fennell's work, though, even if this Nemesis promises to be a very different beast (then again, watching a villain commit mass murder and artificially impregnate a cop's daughter with her brother's baby might not have worked on screen). 

We'll keep you updated on this one as we learn more.
