Taika Waititi in Negotiations to Direct ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ for Marvel (Exclusive)

MOVIES | By Jeff Sneider on October 2, 2015 @ 1:05 pm

He previously directed “Flight of the Conchords” and the vampire comedy “What We Do in the Shadows”

“Flight of the Conchords” director Taika Waititi is in negotiations to direct “Thor: Ragnarok” for Marvel, an individual with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap.

Waititi beat out Ruben Fleischer for the coveted job of steering the comic book movie sequel. He follows in the footsteps of Kenneth Branagh (“Thor”) and Alan Taylor (“Thor: The Dark World”).

A representative for Marvel did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige will produce “Thor: Ragnarok,” which sees Chris Hemsworth return as the titular superhero. He’ll be joined by Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif.

Disney will release “Thor: Ragnarok” on July 28, 2017.

Waititi represents a diverse hire for Marvel, as the New Zealand native is half-Maori. He previously directed “What We Do in the Shadows” and the indie comedy “Eagle vs. Shark,” and he also wrote the script for Disney’s animated movie “Moana.”

Waititi is represented by CAA and Manage-ment.


Ben Fransham (Petyr in WWDITS):
Just been texting to Taika, and yeah, he is directing THOR 3. He can't say much, of course, but holy crap, he's in the major leagues now...


Fantastic opportunity for Taika to direct a Hollywood movie! :clap:
