Alan Taylor, Daniel Minahan Eyed to Direct ‘Thor 2’

7789287.jpgJust days after Patty Jenkins lost the Thor 2 directing gig over those ever-pesky “creative differences,” Marvel is said to be narrowing its list of possible replacements. THR reports that Alan Taylor and Daniel Minahan, two prolific TV directors with minimal feature-film experience, are the leading candidates to helm the sequel to the 2011 summer blockbuster, which starred Chris Hemsworth as the hammer-wielding Norse hero and Natalie Portman as his plucky love interest. THR adds that the studio is mulling different writers for the job of re-tooling Don Payne’s Thor 2 screenplay draft, including John Collee (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), Robert Rodat (TNT’s Falling Skies) and former Tarantino collaborator Roger Avary.

Thor 2 may not have a director or a screenwriter, but it does have a release date: November 15, 2013.
