Ang Lee To Direct Incredible Hulk Movie

Critically-acclaimed director ANG LEE is to helm a big-screen version of THE INCREDIBLE HULK.

UNIVERSAL PICTURES is in the process of agreeing a deal with the CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON man to bring his version of the legendary BRUCE BANNER story to cinemas. According to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, the script has been written by DAVID HAYTER, who wrote cartoon blockbuster X-MEN.

The film will be set in California, and the story will involve the Hulk being chased by the military while trying to fight against evil forces. There will also be a romantic angle, with Bruce Banner falling for a female colleague. (NFA/WNWCAN/CPT)
