Doc Savage is back on the docket for Shane Black.
Sony Pictures says it's closed its deal with Black to co-write and direct the film based on the classic pulp hero.
Black began work on a screenplay in 2009, and decided to make it his directing vehicle in 2010 when the opportunity to direct Iron Man 3 came along.
Now with that movie out of the way, and on its way to earning $1 billion in global box office, Black is renewing his commitment to one of his favorite heroes.
More to come.
