James Gunn Once Wrote A Story Treatment For SILVER SURFER

Guardians of The Galaxy director James Gunn has already made his love for Dan Slott and Michael Allred's Silver Surfer know, but now he has revealed that he once wrote a story treatment for Silver Surfer.


James Gunn has already brought a team of cosmic superheroes to the big screen with Marvel's Guardians of The Galaxy, and now he reveals that he once wrote a story treatment before Tim Story and Fox's Fantastic Four was in the works. The director revealed this fact in a Facebook post where he shared that one of his quotes made the cover of Dan Slott and Michael Allred's  Silver Surfer #11.

Hey my quote is on the cover of this month's Silver Surfer so pick it up. Little known fact: When I first moved to LA in 1999, one of the first people I met on a meeting was an exec at Fox. He told me they wanted to make a Silver Surfer movie, and I might be right for that, so I wrote an extensive treatment. It was a huge story, cosmic as hell, and featured the Silver Surfer turning on Galactus (but no Fantastic Four - this was before the first FF film). At the same time, I was approached by director Jay Roach and his producer Shauna Robertson about writing a live-action Spy Vs. Spy film. That film seemed more likely to get made, and I loved Jay and Shauna, so I took that gig instead. It was my first studio film job. Of course, in eventuality, neither movie ever got made. But people liked the Spy Vs. Spy script, so I got a lot of work because of it. That said, I sometimes wonder what it would have been like had I truly jumped into the cosmic Marvel pool 16 years ago. Instead, I shall satisfy myself reading the great work of Dan Slott and Mike Allred every month!


So what do you guys think of this? Would you like to see James Gunn take on a Silver Surfer movie?
