Actor Sean Gunn, who played Kraglin in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, recently gave an interview where he reaffirmed Disney's choice to use James Gunn's script despite his firing as the director.
"I know that Disney still wants to make the movie. I know that they have every intention of using the script that my brother wrote. Obviously, that was a very unfortunate situation for everybody, most of all him, but I am also somebody who had been preparing to spend half a year making that movie and now that's up in the air."
He also mentioned that Disney confirmed that the movie would restart production at some point, but they didn't tell him when.
"Obviously, I think it's a tricky proposition for them to find another director to step in and also the scheduling of a lot of other actors who are incredibly busy can't be easy. But I know that they plan on making the movie."
No replacement director or release date has been given.
