Monster director Patty Jenkins is being eyed for Thor 2
Posted by: Zack Bruce
A lady director for THOR 2? It isn’t unheard of. Lady directors can be awesome– Penelope Spheeris, Kathryn Bigelow just to name a couple.
MONSTER’s Patty Jenkins is being considered to direct the sequel of the thunder god. There are currently no negotiations going on. It was thought that Brian Kirk would take on the job but he only got a meeting. Kirk served as director for several different episodes of GAME OF THRONES.
Jenkins took a break from features after MONSTER then went on to direct episodes of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, ENTOURAGE, and most recently AMC’s THE KILLING. Kenneth Branagh declined to direct the sequel but will stay on as an executive producer. Shooting is set for next April and will be released in July 2013.
Development is going rather quickly on the sequel. Marvel CEO Kevin Feige says that this installment would take Thor literally to other worlds. I’m definitely up for seeing what Jenkins could bring to the comic world.
