William Hurt Joins Hulk Sequel

William Hurt has joined the all-star cast of Universal Pictures “The Incredible Hulk” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Louis Leterrier directs the story which sees Bruce Banner/Hulk (Edward Norton) on the run, trying to avoid capture long enough to cure the condition that turns him into a monster.

Hurt will play Gen. Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, the man who has dedicated his life to capturing the Hulk — and who also is the father of Banner’s love interest, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler).

Roth plays the villain Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, whilst Zak Penn wrote the script. Shooting begins this Summer in Toronto.
