Default Brad Peyton Directing Lobo

Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Brad Peyton, who helmed the global hit Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, has just been set by Warner Bros to rewrite & direct Lobo, the live action film based on the DC Comics franchise. Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman producing.

Lobo is an alien that works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. Introduced as a hardened, rarely used hard boiled 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 characters in the DC Comics stable.

Peyton is repped by Verve and Piekoff Law.

Yeah, they plan to dilute Lobo to a PG-13 movie. No freakin way!

See, DC seems to feel they can bring all their C and D-listers to the screen because frankly, there isn't a lot of baggage fanboys have compared to WW, Flash and the like. If they **** with it, no one is going to whine.

And the C and D list characters won't cost 150 million dollars.

Lobo can be seen as response to yet to be declared Venom or Deadpool movie.

But, I am fearing another Jonah Hex. (Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman producing.)

It's safer to do a Lobo or a Doom Patrol than an Aquaman, basically. Hell, we'd probably see the Metal Men before any JL type flick.

He's Canadian, directed mostly shorts for Canada TV until he got his big break with Cats and Dogs 2. Journey 2 was good for what it was, mostly pretty whimsical and kinda tongue in cheek. That is the only thing that makes me think he can do this, as Cats and Dogs and Journey were both pretty self aware.

lol, the only thing that'd make this film worthwhile is if someone like The Rock played Lobo.
