Thor 2 To Get Rewrites From Saving Private Ryan’s Robert Rodat

As well as Saving Private Ryan, screenwriter Robert Rodat has also hammered the ribbon over Fly Away Home, 10,000 BC and the in-development World of Warcraft movie. I think we call that a “mixed bag.”

Next out of the lucky dip is a rewrite assignment on Thor 2, reworking a draft from Don Payne.

Deadline‘s story has an oh-so-precise projection for when the film will start shooting:

later this year.

Thank heavens we have Tom Hiddleston out there to clear things up. He told Empire that the shoot is set for the Summer, in London.

Alan Taylor is now set to direct, having replaced Patty Jenkins amidst some controversy.
