Reginald Hudlin set to direct Valiant’s Shadowman movie!

Way back in at the NYCC (2012) we reported that:

Valiant Entertainment and “The Mummy” producer Sean Daniel have hired comics writer and “Babylon 5” creator J. Michael Straczynski to pen a live-action adaptation of the publisher’s newly revived “Shadowman” series, Deadline reports. (Read the original report here)


Reginald Hudlin, fresh off his directorial return with this October’s Thurgood Marshall thriller Marshall, is attached to direct.

Let that sink in for a bit….sunk? Good! Now I would love to be excited but considering the Live Action Static Shock never materialized (It’s been two years and not a single update)…so my excitement is tempered. I wish Hudlin and Valiant all the best with this venture and I will be watching it….granted it actually materializes.

Created in 1992 by Jim Shooter, Steve Englehart, David Lapham and Bob Layton, “Shadowman” centers on Jack Boniface, a man who must embrace the legacy he was born into and protect New Orleans from the forces of darkness that want to claim the city as their own. The relaunched title, by Justin Jordan and Patrick Zircher, debuts next month.
