hold on to your butts
After a lackluster Part 2, the Iron Man
franchise will be rejuvenated thanks to Hollywood wunderkind Shane Black
, a guy who not only gets along great with his new star Robert Downey Jr.
, but a guy who can write successful blockbuster screenplays in six weeks time. The two first worked together on Black's first directorial effort, 2005's Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
, which had a $15 million budget and was about a petty criminal who accidentally finds himself cast in a Hollywood film. Obviously, none of that will come into play for a Marvel
movie, but it proves that the team of Black & Downey is a very, very fun one.
