Justin Theroux has debunked rumours that he was involved in the Terrence Howard/ Don Cheadle change-up in the upcoming “Iron Man” sequel.
Speaking to UGO, Theroux, who is currently hard at working penning the sequel, revealed that the script is around “the first draft stage” and is chugging along with input from Robert Downey Jr.
When asked to comment on cast changes, Theoroux insisted that the role of War Machine won’t be scaled down.
Discussing the changes, the scribed commented:
“Whatever their reason is, I’ll leave that up to Marvel. We’re writing the thing, virtually the same for Rhodey that we would for any actor. We’re really taking what’s going to be the most interesting story for the fans, and what are they going to enjoy watching. And who ever’s in that part is going to have to play that part and make it work … I haven’t met Don, and I think I’m going to in a little bit and I think once I get a better sense of his voice and also hear what he has to say about what he likes about the character and just pick his brain a little bit, then we’ll obviously start to tailor it to him.”
