Shane Black on 'Iron Man 3'
According to Ain’t It Cool News reader/contributor “Krullboy”, at the Omaha Film Festival Shane Black confirmed he will be both writing and directing IRON MAN 3.
Reportedly, he said that he will be meeting this week with Robert Downey Jr, to confer on the storyline. He and Downey worked together previously 0n the action-comedy KISS KISS BANG BANG, which Black wrote, based on a novel by Brent Halliday (Bodies Are Where You Find Them).
After the larger-than-life team outing with THE AVENGERS , the next IRON MAN film apparently will focus more on Tony Stark/Iron Man dealing with “real world” villains, without any extra guest heroes. It’s said that Shane Black compared his planned story to a “Tom Clancy thriller”.
