The "Hulk" Gets a New Creator!

by | April 6, 2007 | Comments

For Ang Lee‘s "Hulk," it was Industrial Light & Magic that brought the massive green guy to life on the silver screen. But when it comes to Louis Leterrier‘s follow-up, "The Incredible Hulk," Universal is going with a company called Rhythm & Hues Studio.

Rhythm & Hues are best-known for their work on Aslan the Lion in "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," although some of their team members won Oscars for their work on the original "Babe." The upstart outfit has also signed on to do work for "Alvin and the Chipmunks," "Evan Almighty," "The Kingdom," and "The Golden Compass." (Check out their official site right here.)

Since most of R&H’s previous work focused on the "animal" side of the equation, obviously the team is really looking forward to blowing our doors off with their all-new Hulk. President Lee Berger says "It’s the first time Rhythm & Hues has been able to take a human-like character to its full exposition … There’s great enthusiasm for this project."

Apparently this means that the Hulk will look a bit different from the first flick, which may or may not be a problem, depending on if you liked Ang Lee’s adaptation. (I sure did.) Our source also indicates that the "Incredible Hulk" screenplay will be credited to Zak Penn, Stan Lee, and Jack Kirby — which sounds a little weird considering that Mr. Kirby died in 1994.
