‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Scribe Dan Harris Signs with WME
Writer and director Dan Harris who is currently in project to write the script for “X-Men: Apocalypse” has signed with WME. Read on for more details about this story.
Deadline has reported that “X-Men: Apocalypse” scribe Dan Harris signs in with WME, leaving his old agency, CAA, to join with his often writing partner Dougherty, of which he had worked in projects such as Fox’s “X-Men 2” (2003) and Warner Bros.’ “Superman Returns” (2006). Harris is also known in his feature film directing debut “Imaginary Heroes” (2004). Bryan Singer, who directed both of “X-Men 2” and “Superman Returns,” is also with WME.
WME is a talent agency with offices in Beverly Hills, New York City, London, Miami, Nashville and Dallas. It was founded in April 2009, after the merging of the William Morris Agency and the Endeavor Agency. WME represents artists across all media platforms, specifically movies, television, music, theater, digital and publishing and is run by co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell.
Earlier on, Director Singer has teased fans with an image of the script for their upcoming “X-Men” franchise, “X-Men: Apocalypse,” in Instagram. The monologue in the screenplay, dated June 6, references a battle set at the Nile involving the Four Horsemen, who made an appearance in the end credits of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
In the comics, Apocalypse is one of the very first mutants and is both thousands of years old and a monstrous tyrant that has been a longtime foe of the “X-Men.” He believes that only the strongest, whether mutant or superhuman, should survive. He is the master of the Four Horsemen, of which has made several incarnations within the comic books, with the four riders consisting of mutants and nonmutants alike.
This may also serve as indirect confirmation that he will be directing the “Days of Future Past” sequel.
Singer’s last project has grossed more than $712 million worldwide since it opened, overlapping “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
