Earlier we reported that Joe Carnahan (The Grey) was set to direct Mark Millar's Nemesis comic book. Now we have confirmation thanks to Carnahan and CBM. It has also been reported that Liam Neeson is attached to play Blake Morrow, the police detective who the titular villain targets.
Here are Carnahan's tweets confirming that he and his brother Matthew have begun working on the screenplay:
My brother and I have begun 'Nemesis...' This script is gonna be a beast.— Joe Carnahan (@carnojoe) November 20, 2012
The bearded genius who shot Bin Laden AND made The Grey in the past 2 years has just started Nemesis movie. GO GO! @carnojoe!!!!!— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) November 20, 2012
Here's the plot summary from the comic:
What if the smartest, toughest costumed bad ass in the world was totally evil? Meet Nemesis. He's systematically been destroying the lives of every police chief in Asia, and he's now set his sights on Washington, DC. Between you and me, the police don't have a chance.
