DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Taps Screenwriter Jade Bartlett To Pen Script

Marvel Studios has reportedly brought on a new scribe for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in the form of up-and-coming screenwriter Jade Bartlett (Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know)...

Marvel has brought on a new writer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

According to Collider, the studio has tapped up-and-coming screenwriter Jade Bartlett to pen the script. Previous reports indicated that the first film's co-writer C. Robert Cargill would be returning, so it's unclear if Bartlett will work on the story with him, or if Marvel has decided to start from scratch and Bartlett will receive a sole credit.

Scott Derrickson will return to the director's chair, with Benedict Cumberbatch reprising the role of Dr. Stephen Strange alongside Benedict Wong as Wong. They'll be joined by Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.

Bartlett came to Hollywood's attention with her Black List script for Miller's Girl, which she is set to direct. She's also been hired to adapt Chloé Esposito‘s debut novel Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know for Universal.

The Doctor Strange sequel is set to hit theaters on May 7, 2021.
