Dwayne Johnson Says He May Play Lobo
July 16, 2012
On Sunday, Dwayne Johnson was asked on Twitter
by a fan if the rumors of him playing Lobo
at Warner Bros. Pictures were true, and he made pretty big announcement:"Rumors of me possibly playing LOBO are true. Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun.. "
If cast, Johnson would be reuniting with Peyton, who directed him in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
, which was released earlier this year.
Created in 1984 by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, the DC Comics character is a Czarnian (originally Velorpian) bounty hunter who, as a nearly indestructible anti-hero, drives a space-faring motorcycle across the cosmos in search of his next target.
The studio has not set a release date yet for the film.
