Jennifer Kaytin Robinson to Assist Taika Waititi with Thor: Love and Thunder Script
According to The Wrap, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson will assist newly-minted Academy Award-winning Jojo Rabbit screenwriter Taika Waititi as he updates the Thor: Love and Thunder script before the August production start date. Robinson wrote and directed Someone Great for Netflix, which starred Gina Rodriguez, Brittany Snow and DeWanda Wise.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be directed by Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) which will be the followup to his wildly successful 2017 sequel Thor: Ragnarok. Natalie Portman is set to return as Jane and will wield the mighty Mjolnir. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will also return as Thor and Valkyrie, respectively. The female Thor storyline is based on Jason Aaron’s run on “The Mighty Thor” in which a cancer-stricken Jane Foster takes up the mantle and powers of Thor.
Christian Bale will also star in the film in an unspecified villain role, though many suspect it could be Balder the Brave.
Thor and Valkyrie were last seen in this year’s highest-grossing film of all time Avengers: Endgame, with the god of thunder entrusting his responsibilities as the King of Asgard to Valkyrie as he joins the Guardians of the Galaxy on their next mission.
Thor: Love and Thunder will arrive in theaters on November 5, 2021.
