Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has led a turbulent life. His career as a smooth-operating private investigator was no picnic. There was that time his life partnership ceremony with tag team partner Chuck Palumbo turned out to be a publicity scam organized by their manager, Rico. Project Runway ratings have been down. And now, he has to relinquish Guardians of the Galaxy to movie theaters in a month, and abandon his love affair with a wisecracking raccoon. Gunn posted the following message on his Facebook as the August 1 release date of Guardians rapidly approaches:

I swear, I've gotten angry with filmmakers like Ridley Scott and George Lucas who can't let go of their old films and want to keep going back and offering up different versions, but I can easily see myself doing that now.

This is essentially my last week of actually making Guardians of the Galaxy. It's been two years straight and I've starting to become terrified of actually having to STOP. But on July 7 I leave for Singapore to begin the press tour so I suppose I really have no choice.

There isn't much left. I'm still playing with the sound mix and the 3D and the DI (digital intermediate - basically the color-timing) - and there are some outstanding visual effects shots. But I still want to do what I can with what I have left to make the most stunning film I can for you guys on August 1! I think the Marvel producers are starting to understand my almost psychotic inability to be happy with anything, and to pick apart things to the very bitter end. They're going to have to tear this movie from my bloody grip.

Aagh.

I'm starting to get very sad every time I think of how I'm going to miss all of the people I've been working with side-by-side for the past two years. And - to show you how strange I really am - I get teary-eyed when I think of how I won't be working with Rocket (at least for a little while). He's been the center of my life for a long time now, and I've come to love the little son-of-a-bitch. Really.

Let's be honest. I'm getting teary-eyed now writing those words. And yes that may be a sign that I really am in need of a break.

But for now, it's back to work. Love to you all. Have a fantastic weekend.
