He said: "Nemesis is one of the most relentless and powerful screenplays I've ever read. I was actually SHELL-SHOCKED after reading it, thinking about it for hours afterwards and discussing it with the family.

"As a movie, the Carnahans have crafted something we've never actually seen before and I feel like someone in Julia Phillips' office must have felt when Schrader's Taxi Driver script first landed on their desk. This is going to be one of the best movies of the decade.

"The fact that it's a superhero movie is incredibly exciting to me. This is the next step for where a comic-book adaptation can go and, simply as a viewer, I'm now counting down the days until I can sit in a screening room and see the first cut."

Nemesis tells the story of police chief Blake Morrow, who becomes the target of a supervillain who embodies traits of both Batman and the Joker.

Liam Neeson was previously linked with the role of Blake Morrow, but his involvement with the project has not been officially confirmed.
