Branagh to Direct Thor?
Variety is reporting that ego-centric master thespian Kenneth Branagh is "in talks" to direct the upcoming Marvel comics big screen adaptation of Thor.
Seriously. THAT Kenneth Branagh. (uh, the one on the left in the picture)
Marvel hasn't said who will be distributing this opus, but its scheduled to be released in 2010. Whoever they pick to helm this thing, they have a lot of work to do in a short time.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and be the first to state that this Thor movie is going to blow chunks. Knowing just a little about how Mr. Branagh operates, I think its safe to say that this is going to be so overly-directed and heavy-handidly over-the-top melodramatic, that my guess is that it will be talked about in Razzie circles for years to come.
However, I reserve the right to completly deny ever writing this post should the movie be a huge success.
