20th Century Fox Acquires Screen Rights to Mark Millar’s Nemesis


The Website Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has acquired screen rights to the Marvel/Icon comic book miniseries Nemesis.

Created by writer Mark Millar, and artist Steve McNiven, who co-own the rights to the title, Nemesis has as yet only had two issue published, so this is being optioned ridiculously early, but studios are pretty much falling over each other to get their hands on the latest Millar project!

Tony Scott is attached to direct the movie, with Scott Free set to produce. Scott Free will set a writer and work on the adaptation. The property was repped by CAA and Harris Miller.

Nemesis tells the story of Matt Anderson, a billionaire genius who’s the “smartest, toughest costumed bad ass in the world”.  He’s systematically been destroying the lives of every police chief in Asia, and he’s now set his sights on Washington, DC, to take down the top cop in the US, who just happens to be the detective who took down his villainous parents.
