David Duchovny Set to "Hulk" Up?

by | January 18, 2006 | Comments

According to the IMDb newsfeed, former X-Filer star David Duchovny is pretty close to signing a deal that would put him in the role of Bruce Banner … the guy who turns giant and green whenever he gets angry.

"Former X-Files star David Duchovny is set to become the new Incredible Hulk after Aussie actor Eric Bana pulled out of the sequel project. Peter Cuneo, the vice chairman of comic book franchise Marvel, revealed Duchovny is the frontrunner to play the green giant in The Incredible Hulk 2 in a recent interview with AOL’s Motley Fool Radio Team. He said, "Duchovny’s name has been bought up several times. He’s quite the fan too." Bana pulled out of the sequel when he discovered the plan was to release the film direct to DVD. Cuneo insists there’s still life in the Hulk project: "Hulk did $250 million worldwide box office, which is a huge box office, and as you may recall, we had tremendous success with our toy line, which was a complete sell-out, over $100 million worldwide.""

Direct to video? Hm. Let’s hope Universal lays some groundwork by producing a GOOD DTV movie, thereby indicating to the other studios that junk like "American Pie: Band Camp" and "Single White Female 2: The Psycho" is only good for a quick buck and a lot of sneers.
