"Tony Scott, brother of Ridley Scott... I just got a call from him, literally about a month ago... it was one of those very surreal things," Millar reveals his conversation with the movie's director. "This is a $150 million budget... he said 'Who do you fancy for it?'... I said 'I dunno, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp' so he said 'That's good, we'll give them a call'."
Millar previously stated that Pitt would fit to play Blake Morrow while Depp should portray Nemesis.
