“We’re very far into the — we’re finishing the treatment basically, which is pretty big. So it ends up being like where you’re fairly close to a well-along screenplay by the time I’m done with the treatment in my process. So yeah, we’ve been working on it for a while. It’s going great. I’m super excited about it. I’m super excited about the story.”
Regarding who is writing the script, Jenkins didn’t say: “I want him to have his own proper announcement, so I’m going to wait until that comes out.”
