Sam Raimi is looking to get back into the superhero movie business, and ‘The Shadow’ may be the answer. ‘The Shadow’ is currently set up at Sony with Sam Raimi (having recently walked from the “Spider-Man” films) lined up to produce. However, we are hearing from our sources that Raimi is itching to get back in the director’s chair ASAP and wants ‘The Shadow’ to be his next directorial feature. He loves the character and flipped over this latest draft.
A version of ‘The Shadow’ was previously released in 1994 with Alec Baldwin in the title role and directed by Russell Mulcahy (Resident evil: Extinction).
