Marvel’s ‘Thunderbolts’ Gets A New Writer


Lee Sung Jin is taking over writing duties on Marvel Studios’ ‘Thunderbolts’ from the previously announced Eric Pearson (‘Black Widow’). Lee is the creator and showrunner of Netflix’s soon to be released ‘Beef’ and this will be his first feature film script to be produced.

‘Thunderbolts’ is being directed by Jake Schreier, who work with Lee on ‘Beef’, and ‘Beef’ star Steven Yeun is also onboard.

I’m rewriting it. It’s the whole squad again. Jake asked me if I would come on board. I probably should have taken a break, but there’s a lot of themes and exciting things about the movie that I couldn’t help but sign on.

It’s truly an honor to be part of a Marvel thing, but it is very different. One, it’s not my project, it’s Jake’s. It’s such a large scope and scale that the type of writing is very different. At the same time, the process feels the same, I’m still talking to Jake every day. … I think once you find the squad of people you love and trust and are so talented, you do everything you can to keep working with them.
