Captain America Movie Gets 2 Screenwriters
Posted 11.21.08 by Ryan
On the heels of the news that Joe Johnston will direct the film version of First Avenger: Captain America, now Variety reports that the writing duties will go to Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the writers of both Chronicles of Narnia films. Before fanboys start worrying that Steve Rogers and Bucky will be jumping out of a wardrobe to keep a Red Skull from bringing an eternal winter to the Allied powers, remember the screenwriting pair also won Emmys for their Life and Death of Peter Sellers script. So, clearly, the costumed heroes will instead jump out of a wardrobe to find the thief of a valuable pink diamond.
So far there's no casting news for the movie, scheduled for release on May 6, 2011, with Avengers Movie scheduled to follow two months later on July 15. However there is a heated debate on who should be cast. (Click on User Comments tab).
