Sorta. Although that would be awesome.

Former Dr. Who star Matt Smith has signed on to loan his time travel experience to Terminator: Genesis. The press release describes Smith’s part as a major character with strong ties to John Connor, whose role will grow in the second and third films of the planned trilogy. The role seems much more substantial than a simple cameo which rules out his playing a guy murdered by a naked Terminator in exchange for his bow tie and smart jacket. What we do know about the new series is that it plays with different timelines. Armed with that information, it’s safe to guess that Smith will be playing a young Bill Nye. (Deadline)

Robert Rodat is gettin’ paaaaaiiiiddddd. The Saving Private Ryan writer has been hired to rewrite Marvel‘s Thor 2. Now that Alan Taylor is firmly in place for realsies to direct, the studio was ready to bring in the creator of Falling Skies for a rewrite. It’s unclear what the plot details for the film will be. There’s speculation that the sequel will deal with the aftermath of the events that take place in The Avengers. However, it has been disclosed that Iron Man 3 will be its own standalone film. Perhaps they will go the solo route with Thor 2 as well and Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman will totally do it and have Thor babies.

One thing that is for certain, Rodat’s talent for creating carefully crafted characters and intense moral dilemmas will not be needed here. Any deeper moments will be replaced with “Thor throws hammer at a laser.” (Deadline)

‘Thor 2′ Has A Director Again http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/thor-2-has-a-director-again/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/thor-2-has-a-director-again/#comments Tue, 27 Dec 2011 14:00:56 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=240731 For now.

Earlier assumptions that Thor 2 was just going to direct itself seem to have been proved false. After dismissing Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk and Monster director Patty Jenkins, they have now settled on Alan Taylor, a different Game of Thrones director.

Marvel has been notoriously cheap when it comes to paying the directors and talent from their films, so it is surmised that Taylor met the right price and won’t push back when bullied with studio notes. Until, of course, he a lab accident or magical talisman grants him super-human abilities and help him find the confidence to stand up for himself and the downtrodden masses.

Also in the running for the gig was Daniel Minahan, who also directs on HBO‘s Game of Thrones. Man, that show is going to have an awkward season two premiere party. (Deadline)
