Straight from screenwriter Shane Black's mouth to the content providing administrative screen of Ain't It Cool News, the Lethal Weapon writer has been hired to write a brand-new screenplay for a proposed Doc Savage movie. Guess who's producing this new attempt? None other than Star Trek/Transformers super-scribes-turned-producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Black communicated the news to AICN's founder Harry Knowles who also got told that this attempt will keep the character in his original time piece of the 1930s and also make sure that Doc's troupe of adventurers -- Ham, Johnny, Monk, Long Tom and Renny -- will be included. "It will be an original Doc Savage story that attempts to encapsulate the feeling of the whole collection of Lester Dent's work," writes AICN's poobah.
Hollywood has been trying for decades to get a Doc Savage movie off the ground with no result. Back in his heyday Arnold Schwarzenegger was linked to play the man of bronze but as we all know nothing ever came of that. In fact, the closest we've ever gotten to seeing a modern day made Doc Savage movie would have to be 1984's Buckaroo Banzai.- Ain't It Cool News. Comment on this Scoop (0)
