Iron Man 2 script

07.16.2008

Before you get too excited, no I don't have a copy of the IRON MAN 2 script that I'm reviewing but I am here to bring you some quality news about the IRON MAN script. With new deals for director Jon Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr. all but set in stone, Marvel Studios has hand-picked a writer to work on the script. Justin Theroux, who shares a writing credit on TROPIC THUNDER with Ben Stiller and Etan Cohen, will work on a script to bring Iron Man back to the big screen. Considering that Robert Downey, Jr. openly admitted to David Letterman that he would wad up pages of the first film's script, throw them in the garbage and improv dialogue with Favreau, it's not an easy task for a writer. But I'd bet dollars to donuts that Downey, Jr. had some sort of approval on the writer and gave Theroux, who he worked with on THUNDER, a positive recommendation. The set April, 2010 release date that Marvel announced earlier this summer is no longer set in stone and simply a date the studio "hopes" to get its film in theaters by. Don't count on it. Expect to see IRON MAN 2 in 2011.
