Edward Norton To Star In "The Incredible Hulk"

Despite the relatively lackluster box office performance and less than enthusiastic reception by audience members, a sequel to 2003's "Hulk" is in the works.

According to Variety.com, Edward Norton has signed on to play the gamma-gorged Bruce Banner in "The Incredible Hulk." Distributed by Universal Pictures, "The Incredible Hulk" is to be directed by Louis Leterrier with an opening set for June 13, 2008. The film will attempt to return to a style that is more in keeping with the comic series and TV show as compared to the Ang Lee-directed "Hulk", which took many liberties and departures from previous versions. Since first taking on the role as director, Leterrier has referred to the movie as more of a "reboot" rather than sequel.

Stay tuned for more casting announcements in the coming months.
