Recently, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler expressed that he “would do anything” to land a role in a potential Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The musician was speaking with People Magazine promoting his new film, Happy Birthday when he called to director James Gunn by name, hoping that he would join in on the fun in the near future.
Gunn was recently at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting the newest film he wrote, The Belko Experiment. During a Facebook Q&A, the filmmaker responded to Tyler’s shoutout and from the looks of it, Gunn’s a big fan.
Yes, I did hear that Steven Tyler wants to be in Guardians of the Galaxy. He gave me a shout-out the other day in an interview. He said, ‘James Gunn are you listening?’ The answer is: Steven, yes I am listening. And I’m a big fan of Steven Tyler’s. I had the pleasure of directing his daughter Liv in a movie (Super) in which she was fantastic, and I met him for a few seconds at a screening of that movie. He’s a cool guy. And of course I would love to work with Steven Tyler sometime.
Of course, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 recently wrapped production and at the moment, there seem to be no plans for a Vol. 3. However, Gunn recently responded to a Twitter question, and if he were to direct a third entry in the Guardians franchise, he would love to have Tyler along for the ride.
