Sam Raimi To Produce and Possibly Direct The Shadow

Most people know that the former Spider-Man director was set to produce "The Shadow." Evidently, he now wants to direct it also.




Sam Raimi has been attached as a producer for "The Shadow" for quite some time. IESB (via SlashFilm) is now reporting that he is also interested in directing it. He certainly has plenty of experience directing superhero movies with "Darkman" and three "Spider-Man" films on his resume.

The last time a Shadow adaptation graced any wide stream media was the 1994 film starring Alec Baldwin.




No casting announcements have been made. Mr. Remorse is supposedly set to be the villain for the upcoming adaptation. IESB is also reporting a much darker film with nudity, brutality, and some possibly gruesome scenes.

If this is true, it doesn't seem to take Mr. Raimi very long to get back on the horse.

Do you think he can bring The Shadow to life?
