Back in March, I reported that Scottish comic book writer Mark Millar was prepping another film adaptation of one of his original works. The title in question was Nemesis, which was a book that explored a twisted "What if Batman was The Joker?" thematic idea. At the time, based on the success of Kingsman: The Secret Service, the film looked to be a Go. What's more, it was expected to be made by 20th Century Fox, who'd just had so much success with Kingsman.
Tracking-Board is now reporting, though, that the former Fox production is now shifting over to a brand new home. Where? The home of DC's Cinematic Universe: Warner Bros. Definitely an intriguing move, since the studio is knee-deep in developing films that include the actual characters that Millar riffed on in Nemesis- namely Batman, The Joker, and Jim Gordon.
Regardless, Warner Bros wants to make the film, which was co-written and is expected to be directed by Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, The Grey, and Smokin' Aces).
No word yet on a release date, or casting. But we do know that Millar is in love with Carnahan's script.
