Shane Black

Some things are worth waiting for.

As "Iron Man 3" breaks box office records around the world, writer/director Shane Black has a new project in the works. He has just closed a deal with Sony to direct passion project "Doc Savage," gestating since 2009. Black co-wrote the screenplay with Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry based on the hero of pulp novels, films and comic books who first appeared in 1933.

Renaissance superhuman Doc Savage is a scientist, physician, adventurer, explorer, you name it, who fights crime and evil like Black's "Iron Man." Before "Iron Man 3," the "Lethal Weapon" screenwriter directed the 2005 private eye caper "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang."

Sam Dickerman and Lauren Abrahams are overseeing the title for Columbia Pictures along with production president Hannah Minghella.

    Phew, good thing I'm not a fan of Doc Savage and won't mind Black skewing and butchering and twisting and royally pooping on the source material.
