Guillermo Del Toro on New Live-Action "Incredible Hulk" TV Series
From worstpreviews, Back in November, it was revealed that Marvel and ABC are working on a new live-action "Incredible Hulk" TV series, and Guillermo Del Toro is on board to write and direct the pilot episode, in addition to overseeing the look of the character.
Now, in an interview with FEARnet, the helmer gave an update on the series, confirming that everything is moving along nicely. "We turned in the outline to ABC about four weeks ago," he said. "And then we did a rewrite for ABC on the outline, and now we are lining up the pages."
When asked if the Hulk will be different from what we have previously seen. "I think so. Or we wouldn't be trying it," he replied. "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."
While most of the details of the series are being kept a secret, it was revealed last year that Bruce Banner will be in his 20's and that the Hulk will be a mix of CGI and practical effects.
