LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The Marvel comic-book character "Man-Thing," a vengeful creature born from the evil and injustices perpetrated against man and nature, will find its way to theaters on Aug. 27.
The Artisan Entertainment (news - web sites) film recently wrapped production in Sydney after an eight-week shoot. Brett Leonard, who previously shot a Siegfried and Roy movie, directed.
"Man-Thing" stars Jack Thompson, Rawiri Paratene, Matt Le Nevez, Rachel Taylor and Steve Bastoni.
"We have always felt that this character's story would translate incredibly well to the big screen as it mixes horrifying action with a truly mesmerizing and frightful anti-hero," said Marvel Studios CEO Avi Arad.
