It was announced on Friday August 6th that 20th Century Fox has acquired screen rights to the graphic novel Nemesis and that Tony Scott is going to be the director. Tony has directed such films as, Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop II, The Last Boy Scout, True Romance, Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State, Man on Fire and Déjà Vu
The Nemeis comic is written by Mark Millar and published by Marvel’s Icon Comics. The art is by Scott McNiven. Millar's other works include Wanted, Kick-Ass (which both have been mad into films), X-Men, the Avengers series The Ultimates, and Civil War (McNiven also did the art), and Superman: Red Son.
Nemesis is about Matt Anderson, a billionaire genius who’s bent on avenging the death of his parents. But unlike Batman, his parents were villains and he to has also has become a bad guy. He travels the globe as a costumed vigilante killing top cops. He has since returned to Washington D.C. and has focused his attentions on to Blake Morrow, the police chief who is the one responsible for the downfall of Anderson's parents.
I myself have been reading Nemesis and think it is a great book. So, hopefully if this movie gets made, they don't stray from the story and do the book justice.
