The Associated Press reports that Marvel Studios has chosen Toronto as a principal photography location for The Incredible Hulk, to be directed by Louis Leterrier (“The Transporter” films, Unleashed).
The film’s executive producer Jim Van Wyck (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Armageddon), shot in the city two years ago on the action flick 16 Blocks and said he found the Toronto film community to be “exceptional,” lauding the co-operation from the city and the province.
The Incredible Hulk is expected to begin shooting this summer for about four months. The cast has yet to be announced.
Universal Pictures will distribute the picture on June 13, 2008.
