Fans of the Remo Williams novels...rejoice! Iron Man 3 director Shane Black is going to bring the long running series back to the big screen.

Black has signed on to direct Sony Pictures' The Destroyer, according to Deadline.

Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir penned the original series on the US secret operative Remo who was framed for murder and sentenced to death. 

However his death was staged by a secret agency, CURE, operating outside the law which was founded by President Kennedy.

Sounds exciting but looks like we'll have to wait for more news as the project is very much in development - Black has Predator and Doc Savage to helm first.
