Sounds like Nick’s back to direct


Is Nick Cassavettes back on “Iron Man”? Sounds like it.

Though the filmmaker apparently split from the production last year, a new interview he’s given to MTV suggests he may have recently been coaxed back to steer the Marvel-comic spawned feature.

Cassavettes tells the site that he’s in pre-production on the film, claiming that fans of the comic will be happy with what’s in store.

Among his plans is to keep the character’s costume classic rather than go state-of-the-art. “[It will be] more mechanical than high-tech — that’s the way to go on that.” Referring to his vision of Tony Stark’s costume as a “flying tin can,”

Cassavetes said, “Marvel [Comics] is working things out right now.”

Based on the long-running Marvel comic book series, “Iron Man” tells the story of Tony Stark, the enigmatic heir to the Stark Enterprises fortune. A driven inventor and executive who seems to have it all, Tony is haunted by his dark side. Though he commands his empire by day, by night he secretly becomes Iron Man, the living embodiment of decades of defense spending and innovation. Strapping on billions of dollars worth of state-of-the-art armor and weaponry each night to fight crime, terrorism and corporate espionage, Tony begins to crack under the strain of his fractured lifestyle and must ultimately confront the one enemy he can never beat – himself.

Cassavettes was first signed to the project in November, 2004. “This is an ideal situation because Nick is a tremendous talent with a passion for the material, and we have had such incredible success working with both him and Marvel in the past,” said New Line production president Toby Emmerich, at the time. “Teaming up again to launch a franchise as promising as Iron Man is very exciting.”
