When it was announced that Edward Norton would play the Hulk in "The Incredible Hulk" directed by Louis Leterrier, I commented that Norton must need a paycheck.  It turns out that Norton is taking the film very seriously.  At ComicCon, Norton, who flew in from shooting in Toronto, remarked that he had written (or should we say re-written the script).  The original script was credited to Zak Penn


If you believe what you read, Norton has a reputation for getting very involved in all aspects of the film, including editing.  My thought is that if Norton gets intimately involved in this film, it will be better.  While I agree that he can't bring his entire indy edge to the film, the darkness of the television show (and the comics) wasn't realized in Ang Lee's version a few years ago.  Hopefully's Norton can help with that.  "The Incredible Hulk" stars Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, Tim Blake Nelson and William Hurt.  A concept photo of the new Hulk is above.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
