THE CAST OF “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY” is­sued a state­ment of sup­port for di­rec­tor James Gunn on July 30 — a lit­tle more than a week af­ter Dis­ney fired him from the up­com­ing third in­stall­ment of the se­ries — ask­ing that the stu­dio re­hire him.

“We fully sup­port James Gunn,” the cast wrote in a state­ment posted to the so­cial me­dia ac­counts of Chris Pratt, Zoe Sal­dana, Dave Bautista and other cast mem­bers. “We were all shocked by his abrupt fir­ing last week and have in­ten­tion­ally waited these ten days to re­spond in or­der to think, pray, lis­ten, and dis­cuss.”

The state­ment is signed by Pratt, Sal­dana, Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Sean Gunn, Pom Kle­men­ti­eff, Michael Rooker and Karen Gil­lan. Dis­ney fired Gunn af­ter the un­earthing of a se­ries of of­fen­sive tweets from years ago, for which he has apol­o­gized. • For the full story, head to Va­ri­ety.com.
