Marvel considering Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for Guardians Of The Galaxy?

Wait, come back!

Marvel's casting search for Guardians Of The Galaxy continues to rumble on, with candidates still being mulled over to play the leading role of Star-Lord.

However, there are also several other roles that need filling, with Latino Review reporting that Marvel is looking into the availability of both Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey.

Now before you run screaming for the hills, it should be noted that Guardians Of The Galaxy does contain a number of comedic characters, with Groot (a giant tree) and Rocket Raccoon (a talking raccoon) the likely roles they're being considered for.

Meanwhile, Wes Bentley, Chris Lowell and Cam Gigandet are the latest names to be linked to Star-Lord, a part that has already been touted for the likes of John Krasinski, Henry Cavill and Jim Sturgess.

With the film set to open in the UK on 1 August 2014, we'll hopefully have some more concrete casting announcements for you sooner rather than later.

      I really enjoyed Sandler as Dracula in Hotel Transylvania, so if he's providing just the voice for a character, it could work really well and the more I think about it, the more I can imagine Carrey providing the voice for Rocket that could also work an absolute treat.
