Norton wrote Hulk script!

100%

While this year's Con had a lot of cool stuff, it wasn't exactly overflowing with scoops as it had been in previous years. One exception was the word on the HULK panel that there was a new writer on the film. The Zak Penn script was seemingly rewritten and as it turns out the writer was on hand to talk about the news. And I can tell you it wasn't Avi Arad, Louis Leterrier or Liv Tyler working on their copy of Final Draft either. Yup, Edward Norton will not only be starring in the script but wrote the script himself. It's unclear if he rewrote Penn's draft or started completely from scratch. I'm guessing he took Penn's, kept the basic structure and reworked it from there. It's not the first time Norton has worked extensively behind the scenes on a project he's been involved in (um, AMERICAN HISTORY X, anyone?) but it's nice to see he's got a vested interest in this film other than just a big paycheck. To see video of Norton making the announcement at the Con as well as other news from HULK (including your first look at the Hulk himself), stay tuned to JoBlo.com for our full coverage from the INCREDIBLE HULK panel!

the name game

That's cool with the script and all, but I hope he put in a part where someone calls Emil Blonsky an abomination of nature, and then someone says, "Geez, that's a mouthful."

Mindless action?

Seriously. If you are going to complain about Hulk being mindless action then you shouldn't be talking about Hulk period. Sure he can have a hell of a story driven comic (Planet Hulk) but mindless action is a HUGE part of what makes Hulk the Hulk. He SMASHES. HE SMASHES a lot. That is The Incredible Hulk. The director knows action.

awesome

Finally they came to their senses and kicked penn's dumbass out. I hope, Norton keeps Abomination instead of just Emil.

Wow. As an action movie fanatic, I love the director and his films' only problems as I see them are the stories--oh, wait. No longer a problem. This is going to be badass.

Edward norton's a very smart guy, and maybe they can overcome their awful director and make a solid movie, not a just a two hour disposable action scene (like leterriers other films).

Sweet!!!

Glad to see Zak Penn out of this, he's really killing Marvel Films with his mediocre takes on our beloved heroes.
