Looks like 'Iron Man 2' will get a New Writer!

Venkman here - It seem marvel is not looking to bring back the team of writers that wrote the first 'Iron Man' mega hit of death that has banked $566 Million bucks! It was written by Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby, art Marcum and Matt Holloway. Now it seems Marvel is in final negotiations with Justin Theroux to write the sequel to 'Iron Man'. It seems he has writing credit for the upcoming film 'Tropic Thunder'. Hollywood Reporter says Justin Theroux is:
Known primarily as an actor -- he's played everything from Jesus H. Christ ("The Ten"), John Hancock (HBO's "John Adams") and Evil DJ ("Zoolander") to the hapless director Adam Kesher in David Lynch's "Mulholland Dr." -- Theroux is on a career-changing tear. Last year he directed his first film, "Dedication," which the Weinstein Co. released.

I have to say I am a bit surprised. I thought for sure they would bring back the whole team for the sequel but I guess Marvel has other plans. If they think he can pull it off then great!
