A few weeks ago, we reported that Mark Andrews (Pixar’s Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), and newcomer Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) were all in the mix to direct Marvel’s Doctor Strange. It’s a diverse bunch of directors, and now one more name is joining their ranks: Scott Derrickson. Derrickson mostly has a horror background. His previous credits include Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Hellraiser: Inferno, and he recently directed the supernatural thriller Deliver Us from Evil. However, he does have a big-budget feature to his name having directed the 2008 remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still.
