Actor/Director Kenneth Branagh is in talks to direct the film adaptation of comic book hero Thor says Variety.
The story follows disabled medical student Donald Blake who has an alter ego as the hammer-wielding Norse god Thor..
Mark Protosevich wrote the script.
The choice of helmer is a bit odd yet intriguing.
Branagh's closest action-heavy flick is 1989's Henry V .
I do like Branagh's thriller Dead Again and he's a skilled filmmaker...Remember Jon Favreau was an inspited choice for Ion Man and we all know how well that turned out.
Thor.-the movie hits in 2010
