Don't groan! Wait till we tell you who's behind this!
Sources are confirming that acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick are finalizing a deal to create the new TV series version of The Hulk for ABC.
Taking a page from the original series rather than the movies, the new show would focus on Bruce Banner in his younger years, enabling the studio to hire one foxy hunk to play the Hulk. The process of creating the mean-green machine will be different than the movies as well. Along with minimal CGI animation, the monster will be mostly made of a mixture of prosthetics and puppetry. While Del Toro directing the pilot episode is still pending on his schedule, he will be heavily involved in the designing of the character Hulk. David will be writing the script.
Yeah, regretting that groan now, aren't you? We thought so.
You have a bit of a wait for this one to hit the small screen (they're looking a summer 2012 premiere), but if they do they're best work on this, we think it'll be worth the wait.
How many of U are stoked to see The Hulk return to primetime?
