Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the co-writers of the two 'The Chronicles of Narnia' films, are in negotiation to pen the script of 'The First Avenger: Captain America'.
With director Joe Johnston aboard the project, "The First Avenger: Captain America" moves on with its search for writers. Latest report on the matter reveals that Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the co-scribes of "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" and its sequel, are in talks with Marvel to pen the script of the superhero movie.
"Captain America" itself is the heroic alter ego of Steve Rogers. Being rejected by the Army for being a sickly young man, Rogers enlists himself in an experiment project to aid the United States war effort. With the help of an experimental serum, he was enhanced to the peak of human perfection and equipped with an indestructible shield, he now fights Nazis and villainous scientists like the Red Skull.
Many A-list actors have been linked to this iconic character, naming some are Matthew McConaughey, Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith. Still, none has been confirmed to be attached to portray the red-white-and-blue-costumed hero. To be produced by Kevin Feige, "Captain America" eyes a May 6, 2011 U.S. release.
