BUMBLEBEE Director Travis Knight Shoots Down Rumors of Directing GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3
A couple weeks ago a rumor surfaced that Bumblebee and Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight was wanted for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
I actually really liked the idea of Knight taking on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but that’s not his plan. In a recent interview with Bad Taste, the filmmaker shot down the rumors of him directing the movie and says that he plans on going back to Laika to make another movie.
"After Bumblebee, my goal is to return to work at the animation studios Laika, my 'child' bringing with me all the baggage of experiences I have gained with this project. I'm a huge fan of what Marvel did, it's no surprise for anyone to know that as a child I was a huge fan of comics. But no, it's just a rumor!"
Knight is proving himself to be a very talented filmmaker and storyteller and whatever he ends up deciding to do next, I’ll be there to watch it! I’m sure he’s got something in mind that he’s ready to jump into.
Are you bummed out to learn that Knight won’t be directing Guardians Vol. 3? Are there any other directors you’d like to see take it on?
