Justin Theroux to Write Iron Man 2?

Tropic Thunder screenwriter Justin Theroux is currently negotiating with Marvel Studios to pen the screenplay for Iron Man 2. The Hollywood Reporter also confirms that Jon Favreau is also in final negotiations to return for the sequel. Nikki Finke reported that it was pretty much a done deal last week. I have yet to see Tropic Thunder, but I’ve have heard it’s hilarious. But is actor turned screenwriter Theroux the right guy to tackle this material? It’ worth noting that the first film was co-penned by the guys who wrote the big screen adaptation of Children of Men..
