Columbia Confirms Doc Savage Movie with Shane Black

A good five months or so after AICN told the world about it, Columbia Pictures has officially announced that Shane Black (“Lethal Weapon”) will be co-writing and directing a “Doc Savage” movie, with Neal Moritz producing through his (ironically titled) Original Films banner. I say ironic, as Moritz has been responsible for an obscene amount of remakes and reboots over the years. No word on a plot, or if the character will be kept in his ’30s or ’40s roots or, as I suspect, “modernized” for the kids of today.

Black, a former actor turned screenwriter and now director (as well as being a pulp fiction nut), will write the script with Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry for Columbia Pictures.
