Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi would 'love to' make a Star Wars film
We're also getting a What We Do in the Shadows spin-off! With Thor: Ragnarok earning incredible reviews, the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, must be absolutely delighted with his decision to give Thor's third standalone adventure to New Zealand director Taika Waititi. Then again, those who followed Waititi's career knew that something special was on the cards.
After being Oscar-nominated for his short film Two Cars, One Night, the talented filmmaker has since gone on to direct episodes of Flight of the Conchords and make some beloved films. Boy and Eagle vs Shark received great reviews, but it was his 2014 horror-comedy, What We Do in The Shadows, that really grabbed the world's attention. Since being released, the documentary which follows the lives of a group of vampires in Wellington has become a genuine cult-classic. Waititi also starred in the film as the lovable dandy, Viago.
