According to Heat Vision, three time Black List scribe Chris McCoy has been hired to do a rewrite on the Guardians of the Galaxy script for Marvel. McCoy takes over for Nicole Perlman, who wrote the first draft. According to the report, the film will include:
Drax the Destroyer, a human resurrected as a green warrior with the sole purpose of killing Thanos (the villain in the Avengers final-scene tease); Groot, a giant tree-man; Star-Lord, a gun-toting half-human/half-alien intergalactic vigilante; Rocket Raccoon, a genetically engineered animal with a knack for guns and explosives; and Gamora, the last survivor of her species who was saved by Thanos to be his assassin but now battles him.
Guardians of the Galaxy is set to wrap up Marvel’s “Phase 2″ on August 1, 2014 before The Avengers 2 hits theaters in 2015.
