Jerry Bruckheimer will also produce the film, which is being written by Joost, Schulman, and Josh Koenigsberg, and is based on an original screenplay by Christopher Yost.
Yost, who previously penned Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok, was previously the sole writer on the project.

He’s also set to appear opposite Jennifer Lopez in the romantic comedy Marry Me, as well as reuniting with regular collaborator Wes Anderson for the director’s next film, The French Dispatch.
