Marvel Studios announced Thursday it has signed Louis Leterrier to direct a new big screen adaptation of The Incredible Hulk.

Leterrier recently directed Transporter 2, which opened at the top of the box office earlier this year, as well as Unleashed, starring Jet Li, Morgan Freeman and Bob Hoskins.

According to Marvel, The Incredible Hulk will return to the roots of the comic series, combining "a well-developed character storyline with incredible action and fun."

Zak Penn, who previously collaborated with Marvel on X2 and tX-Men: The Last Stand, is writing the script.

The project is being produced by Feige, Avi Arad and Gale Ann Hurd and will be executive produced by Michael Helfant and Ari Arad. Marvel Studios will begin casting immediately. No release date has been set.

"Leterrier has a tremendous passion for this genre and shares our vision for the new direction of the Incredible Hulk franchise, one of the gems of the Marvel Universe," Feige said. "We are very excited to be working with such a talented director to bring one of our pre-eminent super-hero franchises back to the big screen, and we are certain that he will bring the Hulk to life in a way that will appeal to a mass audience as well as the core super-hero fan base."

Leterrier, 33, will be formally introduced during a Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con International on Saturday.

Will Doug Jones -- the actor who played Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movie -- be the actor used for the Silver Surfer in the Fantastic Four sequel?

Reports are circulating that Jones will make some kind of announcement at Comic-Con International.

Asked about Jones' possible involvement, producer Ralph Winter replied with this comment:

"We are still in the development phase of SS, so no firm decisions on anything yet. We are on the verge of coming up with something very cool!"

Winter said he won't be coming to Comic-Con, and Fox as of Wednesday had no plans to make the FF sequel as part of its Comic-Con presentation.

Production of the film is expected to begin next month in August. Director Tim Story returns, as do cast members Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans and Julian McMahon.

In other FF news, Hasbro's Kimberly Willis told The Continuum there will be toys based on the sequel. "We're already working on them," she said.
