Saving Private Ryan writer Robert Rodat has been tasked with a rewrite of Thor 2 for director Alan Taylor and Marvel Studios.

Robert Rodat is reworking a draft by Don Payne. Disney will put the film into production later this year for release in 2013 with Chris Hemsworth returning as the title character.
