Director James Gunn Reacts After a Different James Gunn Was Reported Dead

James Gunn, the director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, is speaking out after some people mistook him for a different James Gunn who died.

Science fiction author James E. Gunn died on December 23 at the age of 97 and his death was reported by Deadline on Friday (February 12), even though other outlets posted the news months ago.

James reposted Deadline’s tweet about the news and added a message to confirm he’s still alive.

“For the record, I’ve gotten dozens of messages from close friends & relatives who read this headline quickly & freaked out. I am alive. Different James Gunn – may he Rest in Peace. (But, @DEADLINE, you might have considered wording this differently),” he said.

James is currently preparing to direct the third film in the Guardians of the Galaxy series.
