Shane Black set to Direct IRON MAN 3!
Hey Gang! Last week news hit the net that Shane Black was in the running to replace Jon Favreau as the director of Iron Man 3. Today it's been confirmed that Black is officially signed on to direct the movie, and I think he's a great choice! This is the man who's written some great films such as The Monster Squad, all the Lethal Weapon films, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Out of these movies the only one that Shane has directed was Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which will reteam him with Robert Downey Jr. for a second time.
Shane is mostly known for his writing, but there's still no word on if he will write the script for the third Iron Man film yet. According to a source they haven't figured that part out yet. They might as well hire him to write the script as well, I bet he could do some really fun and great things with it.
Shane is currently working on an adaptation of the classic pulp book series Doc Savage for Sony, and is also working on developing a live action adaptation of the Japanese manga series Death Note for Warner Bros.
Iron Man 3 is scheduled to be released on May 3rd, 2013.
