‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ adds Jennifer Kaytin Robinson as co-writer. Sounds good!
Jennifer Kaytin Robinson has been added to Thor: Love and Thunder as its co-writer, alongside Taika Waititi. I don’t know her, but I’m just going to trust this entire production.
Thor: Love and Thunder is getting a little more writing love from a new scribe. Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who wrote and directed the Netflix dramedy Someone Great and created the MTV dark comedy Sweet/Vicious, has been tapped as a new writer on the project, alongside director Taika Waititi. She will help shape the script with Waititi, who just won an Oscar for Jojo Rabbit.
Variety reports that Marvel has tapped Jennifer Kaytin Robinson to co-write the Thor: Love and Thunder script alongside writer/director Taika Waititi. Robinson has joined Waititi to work on the script prior to the film’s production start date later this year.
The new hire right after Waititi won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for his war satire Jojo Rabbit, which had also been nominated for Best Picture. Waititi had been focused on the awards campaign until now, but can now shift his attention to his highly anticipated Marvel project, a sequel to his own 2017 hit Thor: Ragnarok. Marvel was quick to announce Waititi’s return for Thor: Love and Thunder at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, with Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as the God of Thunder, and Natalie Portman making a grand return as the new female version of Thor. Tessa Thompson is also set to return as Valkyrie while Christian Bale is in talks for an undisclosed role.
