Sam Raimi To Direct New Fantasy Film Involving "The Shadow"
Sam Raimi is a busy man these days. IGN is reporting that Sam will be directing and producing a new feature that would "unite a number of famous pulp heroes from Street and Smith Publications, which had once been among the top pulp publishers." Street and Smith Publications featured notable characters such as "The Shadow", "Doc Savage", "Kull The Conqueror", and "The Avenger". IGN has learned that the new 'pulp heroes' movie, that Sam Raimi will be making, will feature "The Shadow", "Doc Savage", and "The Avenger". For years Sam Raimi was trying to secure the rights to "The Shadow" but he eventually lost the bidding war and ended up creating his own character that was reminiscent of "The Shadow", and his name was Darkman. Bruce Campbell was originally supposed to be "Darkman" but the studio wouldn't let Sam decide who was going to star in the movie, lets hope this time around Sam will cast Bruce as "The Shadow" because Sam is the one running the show.
