DJ Caruso directing Thor?Uncategorized — By Geeker on September 19, 2008 4:31 pm
Matthew Vaughn a very talented director was slated to direct THOR But his contract to direct the film expired last December which got people talking about who would direct it. Now IESB has taked to DJ Caruso who is hinting that he would be interested in taking a stab at the character. He tells them;
You know…I would definitely tackle it 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.
I can not say THOR Is one of my favorite comics but it is definitely one I have read and been entertained by. I think it is one of the harder films to adapt since you want it to be distinct and not feel like CONAN with magic thrown in. It has to be its own animal and stay true to the comics while still offering something new that fans will want to see. DJ Caruso is definitely an interesting choice to direct.
