"Prison Break" Star Denies "Hulk" Involvement

"Prison Break" star Dominic Purcell has been making the rounds for his upcoming reptile thriller "Primeval," and one of the IGN Movies maniacs was smart enough to ask the actor about his alleged involvement in the "Hulk" sequel. Guess what the guy had to say.

"The whole thing was just rumor," Purcell told IGN. "My agents and myself were never approached to play the Hulk. It was all just Internet buzz, rumor, whatever."

Penciled in for a 6/27/08 release date, "The Incredible Hulk" will be directed by Louis Leterrier and written by Zak Penn. The plan is to restart the franchise from scratch, kinda, perhaps as if Ang Lee's "Hulk" never happened -- which is kind of a shame because (poodles aside) I think it's a pretty darn good superhero movie.
