Guillermo Del Toro To Direct 'Dr. Strange'?


Jay Cochran - July 26, 2010
CMB is reporting that director Guillermo del Toro is set to direct Dr. Strange for Marvel/Disney and the official announcement should be sometime this week.

Del Toro was trying to get the Dr. Strange film off the ground, but it never ended up working out and the rights to the property ended up back at Marvel. The film was officially put into development when Marvel hired Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write the script for the film.

CMB's source had this to say which includes two actors on top of Marvel list to take on the role of Strange:

Expect some announcement of Guillermo del Toro directing Doctor Strange any day now. He has been in talks ever since May, and he actually dropped out of "The Hobbit" in favor of "Doctor Strange". Marvel is very pleased with the screenplay Thomas Donnelly and Josh Oppenheimer have shown them, but they are planning to bring another writer on board to make improvements on it. No talks have begun with actors, but Marvel has put together a "wishlist" that has names such as Nestor Carbonell and Skeet Ulrich.

At one point there was talk of Patrick Dempsey wanting to play the role of Dr. Strange so his name may make the list after all.
