Iron Man Script Done in September?!!!

Iron Man Script Nearly Done

Miles Millar, who with partner Alfred Gough is writing the script for a proposed Iron Man movie, told SCI FI Wire that he expects to deliver a completed screenplay by September. "We're about halfway through the script," Millar said in an interview. "We spent, I guess, seven months developing the story. So we're happy. ... It's faithful [to the Marvel Comics series], but it's also very different from the original. And it's updated."

Millar and Gough—who also executive produce The WB's Superman series, Smallville—said that it was a challenge finding a way to update the story beyond simply that of a man in an iron suit. "That was our initial challenge," Millar said. "When we found a solution to that, we realized we could write the movie. Before that, we were skeptical. We played with the notion. But I think we found a really cool way, actually, to reinvent the suit, make it very high-tech, make it very cool visually. And yeah, we're really happy."

Like the comics, the proposed New Line Cinema film will center on billionaire Tony Stark, who in this case will be portrayed as a man with an alcohol problem who needs the high-tech suit to survive. "Tony Stark, I think, ... [is] a really interesting character," Millar said. "That's what I think really drew us to the character in the first place. It's that he had a depth and an originality that you hadn't seen in a superhero before. There's no character like this currently in superhero movies."

Millar said that the script will preserve Iron Man's trademark red-and-yellow color scheme, but with a twist. "Yep," he said. "But don't worry. It's going to be a very different suit. But, yeah, it will be a gold suit."
