Many of you may have seen this already, but this is too funny to pass up.
Here’s an on-camera discussion between Liv Tyler (Betty Ross), Edward Norton (Bruce Banner) and director Louis Leterrier answering fan questions and discussing Hulk related topics on Moviefone’s “unscripted.”
Apparently, this is appearing on promotional DVDs from Best Buy. The trailer recalls the old Bixby/Ferrigno era Hulk TV show.
Zak Penn started his writing career in the early 1990s with such films as The Last Action Hero and PCU. In 1997, Universal Studios, working at the time with #21 Gale Anne Hurd, hired Penn to rewrite an early draft of a script for Hulk written by John Turman, featuring a fight scene involving the Hulk and a school of sharks. Although a different script was ultimately used, Penn soon graduated to writing the story for 2003’s X2, produced by #16 Lauren Shuler Donner and #19 Ralph Winter. After this success, he was hired to write four projects over the next three years; Elektra (after executive producer #14 Mark Steven Johnson‘s early draft script, based on #7 Frank Miller‘s titular character), the Fantastic Four video game, X-Men: The Official Game (for which he wrote the screenplay and story), and X-Men: The Last Stand. He wrote the story and the first three drafts of the script for The Incredible Hulk, released on June 13, 2008, starring star and co-writer Edward Norton and Liv Tyler. Zak Penn is currently engaged as the writer for the upcoming Marvel films The Avengers and The First Avenger: Captain America, both scheduled for release in 2011.

Founder of Pacific Western Productions, Gale Anne Hurd has produced such great films as The Terminator, Aliens, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. She has, in fact, been credited with creating the “event” motion picture. Her first comic book film was the 1999 adaptation of Dark Horse’s Virus, which she produced with Dark Horse chief #6 Mike Richardson as executive producer. In 2003 and 2004 she produced Ang Lee’s Hulk and Jonathan Hensleigh’s The Punisher (starring Thomas Jane) both to disappointing reviews. She is credited, however, as a producer of The Incredible Hulk, released June 13, 2008, starring Edward Norton, and Punisher: War Zone, scheduled for release on December 5, 2008. Both of these films promise to be far superior to their predecessors. Hollywood.com reports an announcement that Gale Anne Hurd will be producing a film adaptation of the toy line and Marvel Comics title Micronauts. No release date has been confirmed.
