A couple years back, Sam Raimi wanted to make an adaptation of the comic book series “The Shadow.” This ultimately didn’t happened and he went on to make his famous Spider Man franchise. However in 2006 Sam Raimi was signed on to produce The Shadow and David Slade was signed on to direct. Slade eventually dropped out and Raimi is still on board, but now there may be a much better director on board.
According to Pajiba, while it may just be momentary, Quentin Tarantino is looking to co-write and direct the adaptation of The Shadow.
You can knock all Tarantino all you want, you can say that he wouldn’t work for this series, but you gotta admit: he is probably the best choice. He has a huge love for film (which has been shown in all his other films) and knows how to write a script and do a movie right. I’m hoping if he does get picked that he’ll bring an edge to the film and make it spectacular.
What do you guys think?
