The Shadow slips, Raimi project in trouble?

by

The H’wood new engine is cranking out word that that Sony let its rights slip away to the popular pulp character The Shadow.  Sony picked up the rights back in 2006, but even with Sam Raimi heading the production, the company decided to let the option lapse.

Where will the Shadow go next?  It would be cool to see Lionsgate do something, but that company is having its own troubles at the moment.  I’m going to call Warner Bros. out on this one. Get back the rights to the character you had years ago, develop a movie better than the Baldwin flick, and then go swimming in all the money you’ll make off this film.

I make that sound like a slam dunk deal… I wonder how much money the wife and I have in our account?
