Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, creators and executive producers of The WB's Smallville, have been tapped to write an Iron Man screenplay for New Line Cinema.
According to Variety, New Line is targeting Iron Man as a major release in 2005.
Gough and Millar have feature film experience. They wrote last weekend's Shanghai Knights, as well as its predecessor Shanghai Noon. The duo also did two drafts on the Spider-Man sequel.
According to Variety, Gough and Millar will start from scratch on their Iron Man story. Iron Man has been at New Line for nearly three years.
