Lately, Thor 2’s production has been in flux due to the original director Patty Jenkins leaving citing “creative differences” and new director Alan Taylor having to wait for a new writer to rework Don Payne’s original script. It looks as if Marvel Studios has settled on a new screenwriter so now everyone can just settle down and get back to work on making the sequel to one of 2011’s most successful films. Originally considered a contender for the rewriting job, Robert Rodat has bested competitors John Collee and Roger Avary for the position. The Oscar-nominated scribe behind Saving Private Ryan and the creator of TNT’s Falling Skies will have the task of scripting where the Asgardian’s story will head after he wraps things up with the The Avengers this May. Hit the jump for more on Thor 2.

Deadline originally thor-movie-image-tom-hiddleston-glare-01reported on Marvel’s selection for Rodat to work on the script. As per a recent interview by Tom Hiddleston concerning the film, in which he will again play the villainous Loki, Thor 2 will be in London this summer to begin filming. Disney is looking to get production started as the film is currently scheduled for a November 15th, 2013 release. Principal actors Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are in place to return, but little has come out regarding the plot. As it’s also a follow-up to this May’s The Avengers, perhaps the much-anticipated film will assemble a few hints about the sequel as well. In the meantime, keep up with all of our continuing Thor 2 coverage here.

    Can someone explain the whole rewriting process to me? The more movie sites I read, the more you hear about this or that troubled movie having “script issues” and needing to bring in a new writer(s) to smooth it out. You’d figure the script is one of the first things they work on for the movie, so… what happens between pre-production and production that makes them need to change it? Do the producers decide they want to cut or add stuff to the script? Do they realize halfway through production that there is an inconsistency? You’d think that the script would be one of the more concrete aspects of movie production.

      Scripts always go through rewrites before production. the director simply doesn’t like it or feels comfortable with it. It’s about improving; although, it doesn’t always work. Chris Nolan had david goyer rewrite the new Superman Movie script because he wasn’t satisfied with the original finish version and Nolan also had his brother rewrite the DKR script because he didn’t like it either.

  • Just saying

    Let’s hope they make this one longer so that we can actually start to care about the characters.
