Iron Man 2 gets a writer

Tropic Thunder scribe Justin Theroux has been hired…

They may not yet have a solid deal in place to bring back director Jon Favreau (but honestly, can you really see them dumping the director who helped make the original smash now?), but Marvel have gone and hired another important part of the Iron Man sequel puzzle: a writer.

Justin Theroux, who co-wrote and produced Tropic Thunder with Ben Stiller, is the man charged with moving Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr)’s story from origin to the tough second film. He’s a solid choice, and we’re hoping Iron Man’s follow-up will be even more fun...

Variety has the scoop.
