Thor 2 is already on its third director, but assuming Game Of Thrones helmer Alan Taylor stays the course, things are moving ahead for a summer shoot, with a late 2013 release date already set for the superhero follow-up.
Now the script is getting a bit of a rewrite, as according to Deadline Robert Rodat has been hired to give things a bit of a punch up. He’s best known for scripting Saving Private Ryan, but he also has credits on films such as Fly Away Home and The Patriot, and created the TV series Falling Skies.
Rodat will now be polishing the script (originally written by Don Payne), but we don’t have any info of what direction the post-Avengers story will be taking. Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman should both be back to star.
