Since Kenneth Branagh and Patty Jenkins are not on board for Thor 2, Marvel Studios has been shopping around for a new director. Word has it that they had their eye on two guys who had directed episodes of Game of Thrones: Alan Taylor and Daniel Minahan.
Apparently, Alan Taylor – who has worked on Mad Men, Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire – is the current favorite of the studio for the hot seat.
Marvel Studios is also looking for a new screenwriter to rework the script that was initially written by Don Payne. Nothing has been mentioned about whether or not a new person has been picked, but the nominees are: John Collee (Happy Feet), Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan), Sheldon Turner (co-wrote X-Men: First Class), and Robert Avary (Pulp Fiction).
Thor 2 is still looking at a release date of July 26, 2013. Mark your calendars!
… Or not.
