Millar could see Depp as Nemesis

Empire had quite a chat with Mark Millar about the recent news that Tony Scott will helm the movie version of Millar’s super-villain comic tale of hyper-violence. Millar does his best to assuage any worries concerning the daunting task of bringing his over-the-top and very un-PC characters to life on the big screen.

Some of the juiciest bits concern Millar’s dream casting:
“You couldn’t do a movie like this any cheaper than $150 million… With Nemesis, you’ve got two great roles for two A-list stars. The thing is, one guy has to be as good as the other… so each one has got to be a $20 million actor, really. I think you could go for the A+ list and get Johnny Depp as Nemesis and Brad Pitt as Blake Morrow.”

If he bagged those two, this could be THE movie of 2012. As they are still looking for a writer, even if this is fast-tracked, which it seems to be, the soonest this hits is spring 2012, more likely summer.
