The slow trickle of news coming out of the film adaptation of Mark Millar's Nemesis continues as the latest tidbit is that final talks are in place for the screenwriter for the film. Millar's series got the nod earlier with Tony Scott coming on board the picture and now it appears that the man behind Lions for Lambs and State of Play is seeing what kind of fit he can make with it as Matthew Michael Carnahan is in talks for the slot. Carnahan's currently listed upcoming projects include two to-be-announced writing gigs for release with White Jazzand World War Z.
