This could be a lot of fun.

Guy Ritchie movies are usually good for an adrenal rush and a laugh and both work well for Lobo.

However, my biggest concern at this point, is that this will somehow mutate into a "London Chase" movie with an eccentric cast of character who have no idea how they are all interlinked and the clusterfudge they create around each other. While Lobo would enjoy the hell out of it, I have seen it before and expect more from the Main Man.

Guy Ritchie Exits Lobo

Source:superherohype.com

January 26, 2010

Producer Joel Silver told the Los Angeles Times that Guy Ritchie is no longer attached to direct Warner Bros. Pictures' adaptation of the DC Comics title Lobo because the studio is moving forward with Sherlock Holmes 2.

"I don't think he's going to do it now," Silver, who is producing both properties, said. "The studio wants us and Guy to focus on making another 'Sherlock Holmes.' So I think we're going to be doing that. But we're seeing what happens with this. Everybody is analyzing everything. It's all kind of happening right now as we talk."

Asked if that means Lobo will be postponed until Ritchie is free, Silver said he thinks they will more likely go with a different director.

Brad Peyton to Direct DC Comics' Lobo

by SuperHeroHype

April 20, 2012

Warner Bros. has set Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton for their DC Comics adaptation, Lobo, Deadline reports.

Created in 1984 by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, Lobo 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.

When Guy Ritchie was attached to the project in 2009, Don Payne had written the most recent draft of the script and had Lobo tracking four alien fugitives to Earth and teaming with a small town girl to track them down.

Though there's no hint at casting as of yet (and, no matter what, the character is likely going to employ heavy makeup and CGI to be realized for the screen), Jeffrey Dean Morgan told Superhero Hype some time back that playing the ultimate bastich would be one his dream roles.

Dwayne Johnson Says He May Play Lobo

by SuperHeroHype

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.

Dwayne Johnson Teases Potential DC Comics Project

by SuperHeroHype

December 31, 2013

Back in July, Vin Diesel took to social media to tease that he had met with Marvel Studios about mystery role, later revealed to be that of Groot in James Gunn's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. Today, his Fast and Furious franchise costar Dwayne Johnson is doing the same for the Distinguished Competition, announcing to his fans via his annual end-of-year Twitter "Rock Talk" that he has just had a studio meeting regarding an unidentified DC Comics property.

"We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014," Johnson responded to a fan asking if he'd ever play a comic book character. "[W]e will partner up and create the cool bad assert."

This isn't the first time that Johnson has been linked to a DC film. His name was previously tied to the Black Adam role in director Peter Segal's now defunct Billy Batson and the Legend of Shazam! and, last year, he revealed that might headline an also-now-defunct Lobo feature film.

Could either of those projects be back on track or is Jonson planning something altogether different? As it stands, the only DC Comics feature currently announced to shoot in 2014 is Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman and it's equally possible that Johnson might appear in that film in some capacity.
