Guillermo Del Toro Briefly Updates The Incredible Hulk TV Show & Pacific Rim!
Guillermo Del Toro, the master of the creepy and cool was announced to helm an Incredible Hulk television series for ABC in October 2010. Since then all has been relatively quiet. See what the Hellboy director had to say in a recent interview with Fear.net:
Guillermo Del Toro has provided a brief update on the Hulk TV show for ABC and a snippet about his new movie project, Pacific Rim. Check it out!
How will Pacific Rim differ from other giant monster movies?
It's not a Godzilla film. I don't think any of [the giant monster films] have been done quite like this one. And the plot is very special. I'm under the mother of all non-disclosure agreements, so I can't reveal much. But it's a very particular film. I love it.
Is Hulk still happening?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We turned in the outline to ABC about four weeks ago. And then we did a rewrite for ABC on the outline, and now we are lining up the pages.
Is it safe to assume this will be a different Hulk than we've ever seen before?
I think so. Or we wouldn't be trying it. Actually, one of the points of this project early on with Marvel, was "We're going to do this thing different, and here's how. Are you interested?" And they were.
Are you guys wondering like me, whether Del Toro's series will be set in Marvel's main continuity? Or will this be a "re-imagining" of the series like Smallville? I just hope Del Toro delivers a hit so that tv execs push forward with a Cloak &Dagger series and we get that cable network Punisher series.
Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eickvare are producing the show along with Del Toro's managing partner Gary Ungar and Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Joe Quesada. Del Toro will be in charge of the Hulk's look and will bring Bruce banner's alter ego to life using prosthetics, puppetry, and CGI. ABC is looking at a Fall 2012 release date to coincide with a release of The Avengers movie.
