Marvel has hired Rich Wilkes to draft a screenplay based on the companies Iron Fist character. This is according to Mike Fleming over at Deadline, who has been on the nose before with his Marvel news. This goes along with the news that Disney if finally ready to start distributing some of the Marvel movie line with Dr. Strange and now Iron Fist in the rotation.
Wilkes is the brains behind the xXx franchise, and considering Iron Fist will need some intense action and plenty of Kung-Fu fighting, I’m all for seeing what Marvel/Disney can do with the character.
