Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn says he’d “love to work” with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

His comments come after Tyler reached out to the filmmaker in a recent interview with People Magazine, saying: “I would do anything to be in Guardians of the Galaxy 3 – are you listening James Gunn?”

And although filming of the second movie was recently completed and there’s been no confirmation of a third instalment, Gunn has responded to Tyler’s request.

During a Facebook Q&A session (via The Wrap), Gunn says: “Yes, I did hear that Steven Tyler wants to be in Guardians Of The Galaxy. 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 Super in 2010 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.”

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 is expected to be released in cinemas worldwide in 2017.

Tyler issued his country-themed solo album We’re All Somebody From Somewhere earlier this year, while Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer admitted the band’s health was a concern as they mull over possible future tour dates.
