Anyone know what other directors were up for the original Hulk movie?

I can't find any news anywhere but they had to have more than just Ang Lee in mind. Considering they're going back to Penn's 1996 treatment I wonder what other directors were in contention that might be interested this time around? SHH Archives don't seem to go back far enough.
nope, cant find anything from IMDB
All I could find was Ang Lee approached Marvel and pushed the project into production. He really wanted this film. Otherwise...nothing. David Hayter would know but I can't find his site.
I found a news massages of 04 April 2002 where there saying that there be happy that the production on The Hulk has finally begun with Ang Lee as directer. http://www.ew.com/ew/report/0,6115,250933_1||455601|0_0_,00.html

Now you think that Ang Lee whas anouched in March 2002,but i also found a message from 02 March 2001 where there write about Ryan Phillippe as The Hulk and Ang Lee as directer.


There is also a dutch messages from 05 April 2001 where there confirmd that Ang Lee is askd to direct The Hulk.
