Brad Peyton (“Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”) is set to rewrite and direct the live action adaptation of the DC Comics title “Lobo” for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Deadline.
In the comics, Lobo is an alien interstellar bounty hunter. The seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled anti-hero 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. Joel Silver, Akiva Goldsman and Andrew Rona will produce.
The project has been in development for several years with Guy Ritchie previously attached to direct.
