‘Iron Man 3’ Director Shane Black to Helm ‘Doc Savage’ Movie
Fresh off his success with the third ‘Iron Man’ film, Shane Black has been snapped up by Sony Pictures Entertainment to co-write and direct Doc Savage, likely to be his next film.
Based on the pulp icon who has previously appeared in novel, film and comic book form, Black co-wrote the script with Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry. President of Production at Columbia Pictures, Hannah Minghella, said of the move:
“We couldn’t be more excited to be building a franchise from the ground up with Shane and this team. Shane and Neal have a fantastic understanding of the character and a great take on the material and we can’t wait to get this production up and running.”
