Hulk Teams up with Rhythm & Hues

"The Incredible Hulk" film coming from Marvel is giving the Hulk a Makeover with the help of Rhythm and Hues Studio who have been named as the lead visual effect house.
"The Incredible Hulk" is scheduled to start production in June in Toronto. The flim will be directed by Louis Leterrier, from a script by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Zak Penn. Stan Lee is also an executive producer.

Rhythm & Hues was selected after several months of R&D that included the creation of a CG Hulk.

The company is well known for its character animation. For "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," the studio's work included the film's well-received CG lion Aslan. Earlier character work included "Babe," which won an Academy Award for achievement in visual effects.

Pointing to the company's history with creating animals, Rhythm & Hues film division president Lee Berger sees "Hulk" as a great next project. "It's the first time Rhythm & Hues has been able to take a human-like character to its full exposition," he said. "There's great enthusiasm for this project (at the company)."

The casting of Bruce Banner/Hulk has not yet been announced. Eric Bana played the lead role in the 2003 film.
