Dwayne Johnson To Star In Doc Savage Film

If it seems like Dwayne Johnson is attached to a new film almost every other day, that's probably because he is. And he's a workaholic, who has probably lifted more weight today than many of us manage in a week. His latest announcement, though, confirms what had been rumored and talked about for a while: he's attached to star in Doc Savage for co-writer/director Shane Black.

The Iron Man 3 director has made no secret of the fact that he thinks Johnson is right for the lead in the film, and now Johnson has hit Instagram with a picture (see below) of Black and his co-writers Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry sitting with Johnson and production partner Hiram Garcia to, in The Rock's words, "chop up creative and break story on this very cool project. Comic book fans around the world know that the cool thing about 'Doc' Savage is that he's the inspiration for Superman. First name Clark, called "Man of Bronze", retreats to his 'Fortress of Solitude' in the Arctic etc etc." Plus there this: "Here's the #1 reason I'm excited to become Doc Savage.. HE'S A F*CKING HILARIOUS WEIRDO!" Quite.



Black has been aboard the project since at least 2009, looking to adapt the iconic pulp character into a new big screen form. Raised from birth by scientists to be the perfect hero, Savage boasted a staggering number of skills, including scientist, inventor, physician and explorer. Among the most popular characters in 1930s and 40s pulps, Savage's stories were chronicled in nearly 200 novels and across radio, film and TV. Author Lester Dent was his most prolific writer, and it’s his books that Black and his team have been working from.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
