Despite a campaign to get James Gunn rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Disney is standing by its decision to part ways with the director. The company fired Gunn last month after dozens of his racy tweets resurfaced. Since then, the Guardians of the Galaxy stars defended their director. Chris Pratt and company even published an open letter asking that he be re-instated. But according to Variety, Walt Disney studio chairman Alan Horn met with Gunn “but only as a courtesy to clear the air.” Though the meeting was described as “civil and professional,” Horn reportedly refused to budge on his decision not to rehire Gunn. The filmmaker will still be part of the third Guardians movie. Disney will reportedly use his script. (The Verge)
