"Unleashed" Director to Helm "The Incredible Hulk"

by | July 20, 2006 | Comments

With Comic-Con just underway, you can expect a lot of super-geeky news to start hitting the streets … and here’s #1: Louis Leterrier, who recently directed Jet Li in "Unleashed" and Jason Statham in both "Transporter" movies, will be in charge of "The Incredible Hulk" for Marvel Studios.

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Action director Louis Leterrier has signed on to helm "The Incredible Hulk" for Marvel Studios. Avi Arad, Kevin Feige and Gale Anne Hurd will produce the movie, which will return the monstrous superhero to his comic book roots.

Arad and Feige first met with Leterrier two years ago and were struck by his passion for the Marvel Comics universe. It was that passion that shone through recently when — after approached to gauge his interest in directing a new "Hulk" movie — Paris-based Leterrier went back to his studio and, with the help of an artist, storyboarded two action sequences and developed a take on the monster. The script is being penned by Zak Penn, whose credits include Marvel’s "X2: X-Men United" and "X-Men: The Last Stand."
