I vaguely recall Lobo's name being tossed around years ago but figured it had died. Seems Lobo is back in rewrite
with Brad Peyton of Journey 2
now at the helm.
Brad Peyton, who helmed the global hit Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, has just been set by Warner Bros to rewrite and direct Lobo, the live-action film based on the DC Comics franchise. Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are producing. Lobo is an alien that works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter.
Assuming Flash doesn't hit any snags I'm a bit surprised DC is going back to the cosmic well for a character to bring to the big screen after the lackluster performance by Green Lantern
. I can't imagine Lobo will be much cheaper in the f/x department.
