On Tuesday, we reoprted that Joss Whedon was in final negotiations to direct 2012’s The Avengers film. Now, we find out his job duties will include far more than that.
Variety‘s coverage of the story reveals that Whedon will also be reworking Zac Penn’s original script for the project as well.
Reworking can mean making gentle tweaks to the script of a full scale rewrite. Personally, I’m hoping for the latter. Nothing against Zac Penn per se, but as I said in the last article, writing ensemble casts for genre-specific work is in Whedon’s wheelhouse. I’d love to see what his Avengers would sound like.
More on this story as it develops.
