Stan Lee, Disney Commit to Three Films


by | April 3, 2008 | Comments

Stan Lee might be 85 years old, but he’s showing no signs of slowing down.

Variety reports that Lee’s POW! Entertainment has inked a deal with Disney to set up three projects — titled Nick Ratchet, Blaze, and Tigress — based on characters developed by Lee. The agreement comes on the heels of a first-look deal between Disney and POW! that the companies signed in June 2007. From the article:

“Nick Ratchet” will be directed by Richard LaGravenese (“P.S. I Love You“) from a screenplay he is writing. Larry Jacobson and Sonny Grosso are in talks to produce.

“Blaze” is being penned by Gary Goldman (“Next“).

“Tigress” is being written by newcomer Zoe Green. State Street Pictures’ Robert Teitel and George Tillman will produce. Film is not the same as a previously announced project titled “Tigress” that Lee is developing with Michelle Rodriguez attached to star. That project is based on a “Conan the Barbarian” villainess.

According to Lee, “it’s not unlikely” that the films could inspire comic book spinoffs; as he tells Variety, “You either have a great comic book and it becomes a great movie. Or you have a great movie that becomes a great comic book. These things have a natural progression.”
