"Iron Man 3"'s Shane Black has two high profile potential franchises in the works as word has come down that he's the choice to write and direct the "Predator" reboot for Fox in addition to the already announced "Doc Savage" for Sony. Word is that Black has also contacted Chris Hemsworth ("Thor", "Snow White and the Huntsman") for the lead role as the Man In Bronze and has spoken with distributor Sony about the choice. No release dates have been announced for either title. The 52 year old Black has written the screenplays for all of the "Lethal Weapon" movies in addition to "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang" (which he also directed) and "The Long Kiss Goodnight".
