D.J. Caruso, Asgard Bound?
Director D.J. Caruso, while out promoting his forthcoming Eagle Eye, has expressed interest in heading to Asgard for his next project.
While talking with IESB, he said, “You know…I would definitely tackle [Thor] and I sort of wrestled with it before and I was always a fan of Thor growing up as a kid. I know that they [Marvel] have a script, but there’s something, there’s a fear I have about Thor and depending on what Thor story you want to tell, whether you want to bring Thor into the modern world or if you want to go back to Asgard and get the history of what’s happening between him and his brother and dad. That’s one I’ve always been interested in and it also would be, it would be a monumental task so, I could definitely see myself getting myself into that.
“I have had some talks with Marvel about it but I have not seen a screenplay. It could be something that I am interested in.”
Caruso, who also directed Disturbia, is the first director attached to the project since Stardust’s Matthew Vaughn was associated with the project last year. Thor remains on Marvel/Paramount’s schedule for a Summer 2010 release along with Iron Man 2.
