Back in November, we reported that Guillermo del Toro and David Eick are teaming up for an Incredible Hulk TV series. We haven't heard any more about the project until now, with Guillermo del Toro revealing that an outline for the series has been completed. Here's what he had to say below.
"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."
He also said they were trying to make this a different version of the popular Marvel Comics character that hadn't been 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."
Our report from November indicated they will retell Bruce Banner's origin story, with the character in his mid-20s when the gamma radiation takes place. David Eick is writing the pilot script with Guillermo del Toro directing.
The project is still in very early stages of development, although it seems to be heading in the right direction.
