Shane Black on Directing Iron Man 3

This is from reelzchannel

Posted 02.11.11 by BrentJS

It was recently reported writer-director Shane Black, best known for writing the screenplay for Lethal Weapon and for directing Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, could be taking over directing duties on Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3 from Jon Favreau, who bowed out to direct Disney's Magic Kingdom instead. Now, Black himself has confirmed to TheWrap that he has been meeting with Marvel, but he said that it is premature to start listing him in connection with the movie just yet.

"Nothing has been decided yet. I've taken a few meetings and I'll probably take a few more before Marvel decides."

Black has shown interest in comic-based movies of late, signing with Columbia to direct a live-action adaptation of the pulp action hero Doc Savage last year and signing with Warner Bros. to direct an adaptation of the Japanese manga (comic) Death Note last month. Black seems like a good choice to take over the reins of the Iron Man franchise because of his prior experience with working with title star Robert Downey Jr. and producer Susan Downey on Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and because he is also a writer, a skill that would come in very handy on a movie franchise that is known for its improvised dialogue and last-minute script changes.

Next Showing: Iron Man 3 is slated to open May 3, 2013
