Gunn can't stop tweaking Guardians

James Gunn has confessed he still hasn't finished work on the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie - just a month ahead of its release.

The director and co-writer of the Marvel superhero movie - which boasts a stellar cast including Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C Reilly , Zoe Saldana, Benicio del Toro and Glenn Close - began shooting the film last summer - and it is due for release on August 1.

James took to his Facebook page to admit he can't bear to let go of the film, but is under pressure to finish in time for the release date.

He wrote: "This is essentially my last week of actually making Guardians Of The Galaxy. It's been two years straight and [I'm] starting to become terrified of actually having to STOP.

"I swear, I've gotten angry with filmmakers like Ridley Scott and George Lucas who can't let go of their old films and want to keep going back and offering up different versions, but I can easily see myself doing that now.

"There isn't much left [to do]. I'm still playing with the sound mix and the 3D and the DI (digital intermediate - basically the colour-timing) - and there are some outstanding visual effects shots.

"But I still want to do what I can with what I have left to make the most stunning film I can for you guys on August 1!

"I think the Marvel producers are starting to understand my almost psychotic inability to be happy with anything, and to pick apart things to the very bitter end. They're going to have to tear this movie from my bloody grip."

Based on the comic book series, Guardians Of The Galaxy are a misfit team of superheroes who find themselves battling to save the universe.
