‘Hulk’ TV Show on Hold Says Guillermo del Toro

Marvel Studios

It could be argued that Guillermo del Toro is the busiest man in Hollywood. The writer-producer-director often has several movies in various stages of development at one time, and the state we currently find him in is no different, with ‘Pacific Rim’ in post-production and various features (‘Frankenstein’, ‘The Haunted Mansion’) in the works. Perhaps his most intriguing project in development, however, is an updated take on ‘The Incredible Hulk’, which is being produced by Marvel Studios and ABC Television. Want to know when we might see the big guy tackle the big guy?

Horror site ShockTillYouDrop recently caught up with del Toro at an even for Universal’s lovely new Classic Monsters Blu-ray set and got a bit of info regarding the ‘Hulk’ series (which was first announced back in 2010). Del Toro provided the following update:

Right now all I know is the official word I was given is that there’s a writer they want. They are very interested in me meeting with him. He’s very, very busy. The official word is we are holding, but I don’t know…  After ‘Avengers’ having the success it had, perhaps the fate of the project may change. Right now officially what I know – and I’m not hiding anything off the record or anything – is that we were told we were waiting for this writer, and we were going to do it with him.

Sadly, this news isn’t a whole lot different than what we were hearing back in July, but it’s better than something along the lines of “it’s dead and buried.” Del Toro goes on to mention that he still plans on directing the pilot when everything is ready to proceed. (It shall be very interesting to discover who this mystery writer is…)

As for that aforementioned ‘Frankenstein’ movie, del Toro told the sight that he’s been given the go-ahead to pen the script. Sure, said script might take a couple of years to write (his words), but at least we know that The Monster is lumbering forward.
