Tony Scott to adapt Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Nemesis

Tony Scott has signed on to direct a film adaptation of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Nemesis.

Millar reavealed the news of Scott’s involvement writing on the Millarworld forums:

“As you can imagine, I’m more than excited. Steve is delirious and this puts our books instantly in an entirely different league in Hollywood terms. Tony said this was a very timely project and Fox want to get this moving as soon as possible.

“Next up is a script and the writer we talked about did one of my top five movies of all time. The actor he’s shooting for as the lead character is going to blow your socks off.”

Nemesis follows the adventures of a billionaire genius who decides to use his resources for evil.

Scott’s other credits include Top Gun and True Romance
