Columbia Pictures picks up Doc Savage, with Shane Black set to direct

23 February 2010 2:54 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

The Man Of Bronze is getting buffed and polished for a 21st century return to the big screen.

Back in October we heard the first rumblings of a new Doc Savage movie to be written by Lethal Weapon scribe Shane Black, who was also in the running to direct the feature.

Variety now confirms that Black will direct the film from a screenplay he is penning with Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry, while Neal Moritz will produce.

Columbia co-president Matt Tolmach said: "Doc Savage is an icon, a character with limitless possibilities. We have had a great experience working with Neal to bring another classic character of the era, the Green Hornet, to a new generation of fans, and we think he and Shane make the ideal team to bring Doc Savage back to the big screen."

Black made his directing debut with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang in 2005.

Shane Black to Direct Doc Savage Adaptation

23 February 2010 1:31 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

According to Variety, Columbia Pictures' live-action adaptation of the classic pulp action hero Doc Savage is moving forward with Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) in the director's chair. Black has a string of high-profile screenwriting credits to his name, including the original Lethal Weapon, but his one and only turn as a director, 2005's Neo Noir Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, tanked at the box office.

Black was originally attached to the as-yet-untitled Doc Savage feature as the writer of the screenplay only, but has since brought in the writing team of Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry to assist with the script. Producer Neal Moritz (Fast and Furious) is producing through his Original Film production company for Sony/Columbia.

The character of Doc Savage, also known as the "Man of Bronze," first appeared in Doc Savage Magazine in 1933 and was wildly popular throughout the '30s and '40s in magazines, »
