Marvel Studios has assigned Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write a script for a Dr. Strange movie, according to Deadline Hollywood.  Donnelly and Oppenheimer wrote the Conan movie (see “Ratner Helming Conan”) and an early draft of Cowboys and Aliens. 


A Dr. Strange movie has been in development for a long time, including a brief period when Neil Gaiman was moving toward writing a script for a version to be directed by Guillermo del Toro (see “Gaiman Wants to Write Dr. Strange Movie”).
