Marvel Cosmic fans are one step closer to a Doctor Strange movie, as TwitchFilm reports that a director is being sought after.
A script has been drafted by Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, writers on the recent Cowboys & Aliens in addition to the upcoming new Conan: The Barbarian.
TwitchFilm states “Marvel has drafted a short list of directors to approach on the title and is forwarding the current script to each to try and sign someone up to ‘oversee continued development’.”
Regardless what you take from “oversee continued development,” as TF notes, Cowboys & Aliens isn’t doing so well, so a rewrite could be in order – still this is definitely good news as a new Doctor Strange flick looks to be released sometime in 2013.
Previously, Patrick Dempsey has stated he would like to play Stephen Strange aka Doctor Strange.
