After being stuck in development hell over at 20th Century Fox, Nemesis has been put into active development now that Warner Bros. has picked up the project. The Grey director Joe Carnahan is still attached to helm and he’s currently re-writing the screenplay with his brother, Matthew.
No actors have been recruited yet for the adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic series, but now that things are moving, expect some names to start popping up. A big screen version of Nemesis has been talked about for a while now, so I’m sure that many actors have their eye on the character, and we definitely have a few of our own candidates in mind.

For those unfamiliar with the source material, Nemesis follows Matt Anderson, a man “hell-bent on avenging the death of his parents, who were notorious villains themselves. Traveling the world as a costumed menace, killing cops and toppling order, Anderson returns to Washington to kickstart a campaign of terror against the police chief who captured his parents, all building up to a tremendously bloody finale.”
Given Millar’s success with having his work put on the silver screen, I can only assume that there’s a lot to look forward to with Nemesis. The plot certainly sounds like something that’s right up the comic book writer’s alley, and with Joe Carnahan on board, a director who surely won’t hold back, I imagine that we’re in for a bloody good time.
