'Captain Marvel' Gets New Screenwriter

Marvel hires the scribe who pens 'Tomb Raider' reboot to write treatment for its first solo female superhero movie.

AceShowbiz - "Captain Marvel" changed its screenwriters. Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman were originally booked to write treatment for Marvel's first solo female superhero movie, but now Geneva Robertson-Dworet is hired to do the job.

Robertson-Dworet recently wrote script for "Tomb Raider" reboot starring Alicia Vikander. She also penned "Suicide Squad" spin-off, "Gotham City Sirens", which will see Margot Robbie returning as Harley Quinn.

Rumor has it, scheduling conflicts forced Marvel to part ways with Perlman and LeFauve who is currently busy working on Disney's animated feature "Gigantic". Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, "Captain Marvel" is due March 8, 2019 in the U.S.

Brie Larson will play Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who gains powers after her DNA becomes fused with an alien after an accident. Samuel L. Jackson was rumored to return as Nick Fury, but the actor said he hadn't signed any contract.

"I haven't signed a contract, haven't seen a script," he told Yahoo. "I talked to Brie [Larson] the other day, she didn't say anything. She's the only person I know that's actually in the movie."
