Hulk TV Show To Be Directed by Guillermo Del Toro?

Guillermo Del Toro, director of Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth, and David Eick, executive producer of the recent Battlestar Galactica and Hercules: The Legendary Journey, are in talks of jumping on board for the Hulk TV show, with production by ABC Studios and Marvel TV.

It is said that the story of Bruce Banner will revolve around his 20s and will feature CGI and practical effects for the Hulk. Eick and Del Toro is expected to work on the story, with Eick scripting and Del Toro directing the pilot episode and being in charge of the look of the Hulk.

Del Toro on comic books:

“I have always been attracted at the combination of comic book heroics and monsters, Jack Kirby’s Demon or Kamandi or DC’s Deadman or Marvel’s Dr. Strange, Morbius, Metamorpho, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, etc,”

No date has been specified but it’s expected to be released in 2012 of Fall.
