This is no April Fools' story. The long-rumored and speculated unlikely partnering by Stan Lee and Disney has been announced!
Variety just ran the story highlighting the three picture deal that will put Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment in business with the house that the mouse built for several years.
The three titles are:
1) "Nick Ratchet" - to be written and directed by Richard LaGravenese. His last outing as a director was the 2007 released "P.S. I Love You” starring Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler.
2) "Blaze" - to be written by Gary Goldman. Yes, this is the same guy who wrote such memorable gems as "Total Recall" and "Big Trouble in Little China." No director has been announced.
3) "Tigress" - written by Zoe Green.
It is inspiring to see that Disney has finally decided to join the lucrative and exciting world of movies with comic book origins. You can't get much truer to a living legend than Stan Lee so for their first foray, not bad. This should be interesting to watch. More to come I'm sure.
