Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, writers of the first Doctor Strange film, didn’t have the opportunity to submit the first draft of the script for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness before their exit.
WRITER’S SAY ON NEWS
“Since it keeps coming up in news stories, it’s worth noting that Scott and I never had the opportunity to write a draft of MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, so whatever they are working with now isn’t derivative of our work,” Cargill shared on Twitter. “I am of course very excited to see where they take Stephen next.”
NOT ONLY WRITERS BUT DIRECTORS TOO..
Derrickson, who also directed the first Doctor Strange, has been in the news lately for leaving Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness over creative differences. He will, however, remain as an executive producer on the upcoming film. There is no word on who will officially take Derrickson’s place as director, though recent reports have Marvel eyeing Sam Raimi.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR DIRECTOR
Up next from Scott Derrickson is the horror-heavy sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for Marvel, and the Sinister director revealed tonight that he’s making his return to rated “R” horror in the immediate wake of his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Let’s see their take on this ,
“I’m often asked if I’ll ever return to R-rated horror. The answer is a resounding YES,” Derrickson tweeted tonight. “After Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness, I’ll go straight into a horror film I’ve already written with [C. Robert Cargill].”Cargill, who co-wrote Sinister and Doctor Strange with Derrickson, then tweeted: “Might as well also tell you that it’s an adaptation of a Joe Hill joint. Can’t wait to make it.”
In case you missed the TWEET :
I’ve worked with Sam Raimi. One of the nicest people I’ve known in the film business, and as a director, a true living legend. What a great choice to take over Doctor Strange.
