The future of the third installment of the $1.6 billion Guardians of the Galaxy franchise remains up in the air after Disney and Marvel fired director James Gunn.
The House of Mouse has been criticized by cast and crew (including Dave Bautista, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana) for firing Gunn after decade-old tweets he sent making fun of rape and pedophilia surfaced.
But Disney is sticking to its guns, according to reports. The production has officially released crew members hired to begin pre-production and is allowing them to look for other work. No word on when the film will land or who will direct.
