More bad comic to film news. reports that Tarsem (The Cell) Singh has been singed to direct a film version of Constantine (extremely good DC horror comic). With a script by the same fellow who wrote The Glimmer Man it looks bad all the way around. They describe the character as an occult Dirty Harry, which he is not. It will probably turn out to be a bad horror/action piece of crap.

What the!!?? I really want to see Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and I believe all the hype I’ve heard about it. So I was excited to hear that the director of the film had been signed to direct a long in development film of The Hulk. Great, right.

Maybe not, after reading an article at DarkHorizons. Ang Lee says he will likely change the entire script and concept. Will it still be The Hulk, probably not? The problem with film adaptations of comics is that the source is not respected. It is changed too much beyond what needs to be changed.

The reason the X-Men worked so well is because director Bryan Singer respected the source material and changed only what made sense. Only time will tell. Hopefully it will be for the better, but I just don’t know. After the X-Men, everyone is gung-ho (old GI Joe character) to make the next big comic book film.
