Pulp movie news

VH1 summarizes a whole mess o' news from last weekend's New York Comic-Con, most of it regarding films based on pulp characters. Check out the link for more info, but here are the short versions:

Green Hornet: Previously announced as a possible Kevin Smith project, now the director pronounces it dead.

The Spirit: Frank Miller is moving ahead with writing and directing his modern version of the classic Will Eisner character. Filming begins this summer for an '08 release. Expect lots of cameos from Hollywood stars.

Shazam: I didn't even know this was in the works, but apparently they've already got a director in Peter Segal (Get Smart, The Longest Yard).

The Shadow: Not really any news on this one. Just a reminder that it's getting made with Sam Raimi co-producing.

And it's not really pulp, but there's also a quick interview with Steve Niles about the 30 Days of Night movie, coming out October 19th.
