GUY RITCHIE’s Next Movie? ‘LOBO’ Live Action Film Based On The DC ComicSeptember 9, 2009
Warner Bros. has locked Guy Ritchie [SNATCH, LOCK STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS] to direct “Lobo,” the live action adaptation of the DC Comics drama about an alien interstellar bounty hunter.
Production on “Lobo” begins early next year. The character originated in 1983 in “Omega Men,” written by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. Lobo has had several comic incarnations. In the film, he is a seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled anti-hero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenaged girl to stop the creatures.
WB is aiming for a PG-13 rating.
