The latest draft of the script for the Nemesis movie written by Promising Young Woman director, Emerald, Fennell is finished, according to the creator of the comics, Mark Millar. Fennel has appeared in various films like The Danish Girl in small roles, but she later gained wider recognition for her role in the Netflix series, The Crown, and for recently writing and getting behind the camera for Promising Young Woman, her feature directorial debut. The film follows Carey Mulligan’s character, Cassandra, a medical school dropout turned vigilante who is looking to avenge the death of her best friend, a rape victim who committed suicide.

Promising Young Woman saw its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2020. Shortly after, Fennell was tapped to write the script for a Nemesis movie based on Mark Millar’s comic books. Since then, Fennell’s Promising Young Woman went on to become a critical darling and a favorite this past awards season, culminating in Fennel winning the Academy Award win for Best Original Screenplay. This is sure to raise the Nemesis project’s profile with mainstream audiences, and now Millar has an exciting progress report.
Appearing on Forbidden Planet TV, Millar announced that Fennell has finished the latest draft of the script for the Nemesis movie. While Millar did not provide much more information, such as what draft of the script Fennel is on or when production might begin, it is possible this will be the script’s final draft. Read Millar’s update on Nemesis below:
Emerald Fennell, who just won an Oscar for best screenplay for Promising Young Woman, has just delivered the latest draft of the Nemesis screenplay, which is extremely cool, especially after the initial development of the movie by the late Tony Scott, who established some amazing visual ideas for the movie!
Millar has been responsible for co-creating some of the most popular comic book franchises outside of Marvel and DC in recent years, such as Kick-Ass, The Kingsman, Wanted, and most recently, Jupiter’s Legacy. A movie adaptation of Nemesis was in development for several years by 20th Century Fox from the late director, Tony Scott, before being acquired by Warner Bros. in 2015, who then settled on Project Power directors, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, last Fall.
While Fennell has certainly proven herself as an actress and director, it seems writing is really her forte. She served as the head writer for season 2 of Killing Eve and has also been tapped to pen the script for DC’s Zatanna film. Fennel’s version of Nemesis is expected to differ slightly from the source material, but fans are likely glad to hear the project is moving along smoothly.
