More of Mark Millar on his movie pitch-turned comic-turned movie: I always hesitate to link to Millar talking about anything other than comics, because I feel like I’m just helping his promotional efforts, but I found this interview with Empire about Nemesis: The Motion Picture kind of amusing. Remember how Millar was pitching Nemesis: The Comic Book as a Batman/Joker inversion? Well, he continues to do so in this story, even suggesting he would cast the film based around actors who have played Batman and The Joker in the last Batman movie:
“With Nemesis, you’ve got two great roles for two A-list stars,” he says. “The thing is, one guy has to be as good as the other. You’ve got Holmes versus Moriarty here or Batman versus The Joker, so each one has got to be a $20 million actor, really. I think you could go for the A+ list and get Johnny Depp as Nemesis and Brad Pitt as Blake Morrow.”
“When I was writing the comic, I genuinely saw Johnny Depp as Nemesis,” explains Millar. “He’s a thin-faced guy, slightly creepy, a cross between Heath Ledger and Christian Bale, and someone who could pull off both those things at the same time is Depp. He would get it. He goes slightly crazy in his roles!”
Oh Mark Millar…what are we going to do with you?
