According to variety, Disney does not intend to back down in its decision. The studio does not intend to re-hire director James Gunn to work on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. According to the website, not even requests from the film’s actors like Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldaña, who spoke out in defense of the director, will turn the studio back.
Understand the case:
The director had made old tweets with jokes that talked about rape, pedophilia and other controversial topics.
Gunn spoke up apologizing and claiming that he had changed: “Many people who have followed my career from the beginning know that I saw myself as a provocative person, making films and telling jokes about outrageous topics and taboos. As I’ve spoken openly before, I developed as a person, as well as in my job and in my mood! I am someone quite different. Anyway, this is the truth: I used to make offensive jokes. I don’t do it anymore. I don’t judge my past attitudes, but I have become a better person. “.
In Gunn’s resignation statement, Disney stated: “The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’s Twitter are unjustifiable and inconsistent with the studio’s values, so we ended our professional relationship with him.”
