Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Shane Black, director of Iron Man 3, is now working on a Doc Savage movie

Doc Savage movieShane Black (writer of Lethal Weapon, The Monster Squad, The Long Kiss Goodnight and director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) is both awesome and on a commercial career high after the record breaking release of his second directorial effort, Iron Man 3.

While we know he’s got an adaptation of the anime classic Death Note on his dance card, that project will have to wait while he tackles Doc Savage. Per The Wrap, it looks like it will be his next project.

Doc Savage “is a scientist, physician, adventurer, inventor, explorer and researcher. He has been trained since birth to be nearly superhuman in every way, with outstanding strength, a photographic memory, and vast knowledge and intelligence. He uses his skills and powers to punish evil wherever in the world he finds it.”

The books gained notoriety in the 1930s and '40s. Neil Moritz will produce the film which will be written by Black, Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry.

Nice. I collected these books in the 60's.

He might do Doc proud.  Hopefully he can help us all recover from the Green Hornet movie induced PTSD.
