Shane Black to Direct Doc Savage

Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze, is returning to the big screen for the first time since George Pal's efforts in the 1970s. This time his adventure is going to be helmed by Shane Black (who wrote the original Lethal Weapon, among others).
According to Variety, Neal Moritz is producing and Black is cowriting the script with Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry. Offers the trade, "One of the most popular characters in the pulps of the 1930s and '40s, Doc Savage was also popularized on radio, film and TV. Trained since birth to be nearly superhuman in every way, Doc Savage uses his skills and powers to fight evil all over the world.

"'Doc Savage is an icon, a character with limitless possibilities,' said Columbia co-president Matt Tolmach of the character, who is by turns a scientist, physician, adventurer, inventor, explorer and researcher. '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 bigscreen."
