    Default 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.

    Despite fanboys' protestations to the contrary, THOR was an AWFULLY BAD MOVIE. The plot was non-existent. And what plot there was, was boring and utterly stupid.

    Alan Taylor must have been high when he accepted this assignment. It serves him right to get saddled with a shit script.

    Wow. Not on board with you on this at all, sir.

    I am incredibly on board with him. It was a terrible movie with terrible acting and terrible character development (not to mention terrible dialogue, special effects, music, etc.). Even the one thing it should've done right--action--was weightless and boring. But that's just my opinion.

    Ah, well. Here's hoping they do a better job with number two!

    I have almost exactly the opposite opinion of you. However, I thought the action was pretty light.

    Part of me kept thinking the Thor movie felt like Flash Gordon. I loved the Flash Gordon movie, but I also understand why people can't like it at all. I had the same fears for Thor.

    EDIT:

    It looks like someone had the same thought:

    Well, I had some fun with it, in a afternoon popcorn movie sort of way.I ended up being charmed by Branaghs ability not to take any of it TOO seriously, which also brought me to the same Flash Gordon-y vibe SuperRoboPilot had, and that's a good place for me. Usually if I have little to no fun with a film (I'm looking at you Captain America, sadly) then Rifftrax is there to cheer me up a bit.

    Marvel script notes to original draft - "Looks good, add more tanks."

    I'm not a fan of the first movie so hopefully this will work out better for me. A little disappointed we're going to have Loki again.

    The difference is that Flash Gordon was very purposefully campy. I don't think the same can be said of Thor, which seemed to be going for an Iron Man, "hahaha comedy is fun + boom punch kick" thing.
