Doc Savage

By David Bentley – CoventryTelegraph.net

Some new information has surfaced on the proposed new Doc Savage film, featuring the pulp hero previously seen in a 1975 movie starring Ron Ely.

Yesterday we learned that Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black was about to start work on the screenplay and may also direct the feature.

Ain’t It Cool News had reported that it would be produced by the hit writing/production duo of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

But Collider says the producers will in fact be Neil Moritz and Ori Marmur, who are also producing The Green Hornet, Battle: Los Angeles and the remake of Jack The Giant Killer.

Collider adds that Moritz and Marmur have a deal at Sony and so the film would be made at that studio if it goes ahead. This is intriguing, as Warner Bros released the 1975 movie and made it available on DVD in March this year and it’s Warner’s DC Comics which is using Doc Savage in a team-up comic with Batman next month.
