Australian director eyes "Man-Thing"

Australian director Brett Leonard ("Virtuosity") is attached to direct "Man-Thing", a film based on the Marvel comics. According to E Online, Leonard is saying he’ll be playing it as more of an "urban legend" creature, like the Jersey Devil. Shooting is expected to begin within two months in and around New Orleans. One wonders whatever happened to Leonard’s plans to direct "Night Marchers"? Thanks to Creature-Corner.
