Edward Norton to star as ‘The Hulk’

“The Incredible Hulk” will be directed by Louis Leterrier (The Transporter).

The fact that Norton has signed on says a lot about this film. Edward Norton almost always makes great acting choices, and in my opinion, he’s one of the best actors out there.

This move has got me really anticipating this film. The 2003 Ang Lee film was half-decent, but all-in-all, a huge disappointment. It’ll be interesting to see what they do with this movie, as it’s only been 4 years since the previous film was released.

“The Incredible Hulk” is currently scheduled for a 2008 release.

Thanks to john.blog for pointing this story out. You can also read Yahoo’s story, here.



  1. This seems like a weird career choice for Norton. A remake of a film that bombed and taking on the character after it had been done by another actor is not something that an actor of his calibre would normally do. That doesn’t mean it wont work and, like you said, knowing Norton it will almost for surely be a success and I like the chose of director as well.

    I didn’t think the Hulk was a great movie but I thought it was well envisioned. It came across most succesfully as a comic book to screen transition (basically the direction was great) but the story was a little weak.

    I can’t wait to see what happens and a huge Norton fan I hope that it is a good career move.

  2. should be interesting, I hope it is nothing like the last one.

  3. I doubt Norton would have chosen to do this unless he really liked the script, and that in itself gives me a lot of faith that we’re going to get a much better movie this time around. It’s going to be awesome to see the rest of the cast fall into place over the next few weeks. It’s also nice to see superhero films getting casts like these. Whammy!

  4. i think the movie was okey bt nortan has done a really good job..
    it is better than the previous one
    i think it is worth to see again jst becoz of nortan
