Quentin Tarantino to Direct The Shadow?

4 August 2010 7:59 AM, PDT

And possibly co-write the new version as well

Pajiba is reporting an interesting rumor that Quentin Tarantino is now attached to direct and co-write a new version of The Shadow at 20th Century Fox. The site says:

The Shadow is likely one that may be passed around to a few directors before it ever gets made — as of the moment, it's not even a huge priority over at Fox. In fact, it's currently out for a rewrite... However, the person that is now attached to the project is none other than Quentin Tarantino, who is also attached as co-writer... Maybe he loved [the] original radio show and the pulps (which do seem up Tarantino's alley), and maybe he saw Siavash Farahani's script and decided that, if anyone could erase the memory of Alec Baldwin's atrocity, it'd be him. Maybe Tarantino just loves the challenge. Or maybe he’s just »

Shooting to take place in Manchester and Liverpool

 BBC News has learned some of the filming locations for Joe Johnston's Captain America: The First Avenger (some spoilers ahead):

America's First Avenger will battle his foes on the streets of Manchester and Liverpool during filming on the big-budget superhero film.

Manchester's Northern Quarter is to be transformed into 1940s New York for a dramatic car chase in Captain America: The First Avenger.

Producers chose the Northern Quarter to recreate New York because of its towering buildings and pre-war architecture.

The location was organised through the Vision+Media film office, based at Mediacity in Salford Quays, which brought the big budget production of Sherlock Holmes to Manchester and Liverpool.

Susan Williams, drama liaison manager, said the company was approached by the studio, which is also behind the successful Spider Man and Hulk films, in February.

3 August 2010 9:29 AM, PDT

Do you think it would have won around the blogosphere?

"I'll just say this, if we had been able to make the movie that we had gone down [to Australia] to rehearse, if you had seen the production art I'd seen... it would've been the coolest thing ever. It would have been the neatest vision of Batman and the coolest vision of Superman you've ever seen. It would have been dark and fairly brutal and quite gory and just f**king epic."

What was the problem?

"The problem was that, had it gone to production, »
