<em>Doc Savage</em> Movie IS in the Works, But NOT With Orci & Kurtzman

A live-action Doc Savage film is currently being written by Shane Black, but the Star Trek and Transformers writers will not be involved, as previously reported.

It was recently reported on AICN that the wonder-team of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writing team that has managed to turn the stale Transformers cartoon and toy line into a blockbuster franchise and who successfully reinvented Star Trek for a new generation, would be producing a live-action Doc Savage feature from a script by Shane Black of Lethal Weapon fame.

Now, AICN has posted a retraction, stating that Black is working on a script, but that Neal Moritz and Ori Marmur would be producing for Sony Pictures, not Orci and Kurtzman.

Originally published in Doc Savage Magazine in 1933, the "Man of Bronze" was a popular staple of the pulp magazines of the 30s and 40s and went on to appear in radio programs, comic books and a poorly-received 1975 feature film by George Pal. Black is crafting an original script, which is expected to take place in the 30's and feature a number of supporting characters from the Savage mythology, including his "Fabulous Five" adventure companions.
