Del Toro and Eick to Produce HULK TV?
Deadline.com reports that Guillermo del Toro (HELLBOY) and David Eick (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) are in talks to produce the new HULK TV series for ABC Studios and Marvel Television, both now owned by Disney.
According to the article, the two will hash out the story for the pilot, which will be written by David Eick. It seems it will be an origin story featuring an energetic, 20-something Bruce Banner.
Subject to his schedule, De Toro would direct the pilot, and design the look of the Hulk, likely a combination of prosthetic makeup, animatronic puppets, and CGI as needed.
The series, intended for the ABC Network possibly in Fall 2012, would be Guillermo del Toro’s first TV production.
