A script penned by axed director, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista and Karen Gillan were among a selection of ‘Guardians’ actors who signed a letter of support for the director.
“We were all shocked by his abrupt firing last week and have intentionally waited these 10 days to respond in order to think, pray, listen and discuss,” it read.
“In that time, we’ve been encouraged by the outpouring of support from fans and members of the media who wish to see James reinstated as director of Volume 3 as well as discouraged by those so easily duped into believing the many outlandish conspiracy theories surrounding him.
Each of us looks forward to working with our friend James again in the future. His story isn’t over – not by a long shot.
“There is little due process in the court of public opinion. James is likely not the last good person to be put on trial.”
