“Thor 2” narrowing down its director choices

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Once Patty Jenkins exited Marvel Studio’s “Thor 2,” attentions turned to who might helm the mighty sequel in her absence. But sources now say that it might come down to a choice between two storytellers picking up the reigns, getting the God of Thunder ready for his 2013 sequel.

Alan Taylor and Daniel Minahan are the reported finalists for the “Thor 2” gig, according to THR. Tayalor has impressive HBO shows on his resume, from “Game of Thrones” to “The Sopranos.” Those would make him an obvious choice. But Minahan also helmed episodes of “Thrones” and “Deadwood,” so he’d likely do very well in Asgard.

THR also says that Marvel was “in the middle of hiring a writer when the Jenkins exit occurred. Don Payne had written a draft and Sheldon Turner was among those being discussed to work on the script, but the new shortlist of possible writers consists of John Collee, whose credits include ‘Happy Feet’ and ‘Master and Commander: Far Side of the World,’ Robert Rodat, the scribe who created the TNT show ‘Falling Skies’ and wrote ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ and Roger Avary, best known for sharing an Oscar with Quentin Tarantino for writing ‘Pulp Fiction.’”

Impressive credentials all around.

It sounds like Marvel is taking bold steps to fill Kenneth Branagh’s shoes as they prep “Thor 2” for the big screen. As of right now, providing the sequel stays on track, “Thor 2” will be in theaters on Nov. 15, 2013.
