David Slade Will NOT Direct The Shadow!

The director of the most recent Twilight movie has revealed that he will not direct the Sam Raimi produced take on the classic pulp hero, The Shadow...

"Lies," Slade told MTV News when asked about the reports of him being involved with the movie. "Not true. Total internet rumor. I don't know anything about it," he added. "I emailed Sam Raimi asking him if he'd send me the script at least, and no, nothing."

"It's funny, particularly with something like 'Twilight,' you get all these bizarre rumors that are made up by bloggers or whatever! And I don't know how that one originated, but I can debunk it and say I will not be directing 'The Shadow' and I have no idea where it came from."

We could indeed. Pajiba are reporting that the latest Director to be attached to this much tossed around movie is the mighty chin himself, Q.T.
Sam Raimi is still attached as producer but according to what Latino Review, "The Shadow" is no longer with Sony. It is now with 20th Century Fox, and they have picked up the property.
Most people know that the former Spider-Man director was set to produce "The Shadow." Evidently, he now wants to direct it also.
Will Sam Raimi, mega-director of the Spider-Man franchise, be able to spin a golden web around a 1930s classic?
