Doc Savage Film News – Shane Black Edition

October 25, 2009 / 34 comments

Harry Knowles (Ain’t it Cool News) recently spoke to Shane Black (Lethal Weapon) : “When I asked him what he was working on, he shocked me with the revelation that he was going to be writing a script for DOC SAVAGE, which Orci & Kurtzman (those STAR TREK, EAGLE EYE, TRANSFORMERS guys) were producing.”

Of course, that set Flearun abuzz. There’s more speculation at SlashFilm.com (Shane Black Scribing a Doc Savage Movie for Star Trek Producers) and FilmSchoolRejects.com (Shane Black Bringing ‘Doc Savage’ Back To The Big Screen?)

In the tradition of Doc Savage newsgroups, here’s my cast (at least, who I’d pick this afternoon):

Doc: Jason Statham
Monk: Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Ham: Christian Bale
Johnny: Neil Patrick Harris
Renny: Mekhi Phifer
Long Tom: Jim Sturgess

Doc’s Father: Bruce Willis
Patricia Savage: Liv Tyler

Female Lead: Claire Danes
Antagonist: Tim Roth
