Warner Bros Hires Director for "Lobo" Comic Book Film

Warner Bros Hires Director for "Lobo" Comic Book FilmSubmit Comment
Warner Bros has just announced that Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) will re-write and direct "Lobo," a live-action film based on a DC Comics franchise. Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are producing.

Lobo is an alien that works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. Introduced as a hardened, rarely used villain in the 1980s, the character remained in limbo until his revival as an anti-hero biker in the early 1990s, when he became on of the most popular DC Comics characters.

Peyton is replacing Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch), who was attached to the project back in 2009. At the time, Don Payne had written a draft of the script and had Lobo team with a small town girl to track down four alien fugitives who landed on Earth.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan was rumored to star in the film. No word if he's still in the running.

I think I saw a Joel Silver movie the other day that didn't have one token minority.

I was shocked.

Still am.

I guess Silver's idea of making Watson some token black dude rapper uttering stupid wisecracks didn't fly too well with the other Jews.

This has awesome potential but I am worried about WB f*cking it up like Green Lantern.

I hope Jeffery Dean Morgan plays the part doh. Him and Gerard Butler are the only people I can picture playing the part at the moment and Jeffery is the better actor so I hope he gets it.

I wonder who would be cast as Lobo. I always pictures Macho Man playing the role for some reason.

Danny Trejo for Lobo.
