Marvel revamping 'Guardians of the Galaxy' script with new writer
Black List screenwriter Chris McCoy hired to pen new draft of the superhero flick
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy are getting a little face-lift.
Three-time "Black List" scribe Chris McCoy - a writer with no produced credits who's nevertheless been on Hollywood's radar for several years now - has been hired to rewrite the screenplay for the superhero film, which was recently announced as the company's upcoming "mystery title" at Comic-Con 2012. McCoy will rewrite the previous draft penned by similarly up-and-coming screenwriter Nicole Perlman.
The story was broken by The Hollywood Reporter.
The forthcoming adaptation of the Marvel comic-book series is expected to feature the characters Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer and, likely, uber-powerful supervillain Thanos (as teased in the closing credits of this summer's "The Avengers").
"Guardians of the Galaxy" has been slated for release on August 1, 2014.
