Disney Rehires Director James Gunn for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'

James Gunn is back on to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

The director, who was taken off of the project after being fired for offensive old tweets last year, was brought back onto the project months ago, according to Deadline on Friday (March 15).

Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn reportedly met with James on multiple occasions to discuss the situation following his apology, and decided to reverse the decision.

James is also writing and directing the Suicide Squad sequel for DC, but Marvel has agreed to commence production on Guardians after he’s done with the sequel. They also reportedly met with no other potential replacements for the project, making him an easy rehire.
