Deadline is reporting that Marvel Studios has hired xXx screenwriter Rich Wilkes to pen the adaption of the Immortal Iron Fist.
Iron Fist was nearly made into a movie via a partnership with Artisan nearly a decade ago, which would have seen Ray Park play the title character. However shifting schedules a lack of a director eventually left the movie dead in the water, where it then eventually reverted back to Marvel Studios.
I am super stoked about this, as I love Iron Fist. The Fraction/Brubaker/Aja run was phenomenal!
