Rumor debunked! Quentin Tarantino to remake The Shadow?
UPDATE: As the US west coast is having its morning coffee, probably surfing the interwebs for clarification on this, we as we are wrapping up Thursday already here in Europe, are happy to confirm that the rumors are completely false. We may all go back to normal and, if we may recommend, check out what Robert Rodriguez is bringing to theaters… click here. Thanks for reading.
Oh boy, is it rumor time again? If you’re a regular reader of The Quentin Tarantino Archives, you’ll know we’re not the biggest fans of rumors, especially when they come out of nowhere. But nonetheless, you have a right to be informed, and who knows… maybe there’s some truth to the rumors in the end…
We’ve first read it at our friend Rama’s Screen, that Quentin might be in talks to direct and co-write a new adaptation of The Shadow. In fact, there has been an adaptation before, with Alec Baldwin, in 1994. Some say that movie isn’t all that bad, we haven’t seen it. Have you? Comment below! At any rate, it seems like the project to adapt this graphic novel / comic book classic has changed studios, and director Sam Raimi is no longer attached to it. As Paijaba.com reports, there are discussions with QT about directing and even co-writing the flick now, at Fox. Their source may have a good track record, as they claim, but at this point none of this has been either confirmed or denied, so consider this with a pinch of salt. Of course, as soon as we hear anything that might clarify these rumors, you’ll read it here, and on our Facebook Page, along with everything else, from a diddle eyed joe, to a damned if I know….. Dismissed, ladies and gents.
