DC’s alien bounty hunter Lobo is finally getting the big-screen greenlight

Are we ready for a big screen Lobo? God Help us allBy Marc Bernardin, Source: Blastr.com

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard any news about Warner Bros.’ attempt to bring intergalactic badass Lobo to the silver screen—and the last update, which involved then-director Guy Ritchie bailing so he could shoot the Sherlock Holmes sequel, wasn’t great. But with a new director, things are picking up steam.

Brad Peyton, who most recently directed Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, just got the nod from producer Joel Silver to rewrite and direct Lobo, based on the character created by Keith Giffen and Roger Slifer back in 1983.

It’s unclear how much of Lobo will retain the character’s interstellar bounty hunter roots, given the relative disappointment of Warner’s last attempt at cosmic adventure, Green Lantern. Nor is there any word of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s potential involvement—he threw his hat into the ring during Watchmen’s press siege.

Personally, I’d rather see a Lobo TV series on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, rather than a feature, but that’s just me.
