Film news website Deadline is reporting that Disney has hired writers for the long-languishing live action film starring none other than Marvel’s (former) Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange. The team of Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer has been selected for the script chores. Genre fans will know Donnelly and Oppenheimer for their work on the film adaptations of Cowboys and Aliens, “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” and the upcoming Conan reboot. It is likely that this will be Marvel’s first film released under the Disney banner, as it is not planned for release until after their film deal with Paramount expires.
Get to work on that dream cast, kids!
