Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are reportedly seeking Michael Bay to direct the long in-development movie based on the comics property “Lobo”.
Bay has reportedly met about the project and offered some notes that screenwriter Jason Fuchs (“Wonder Woman”) will incorporate into a new draft which they will present to Bay hoping to get him to sign – for now there’s no official offer though. One issue is budget, the current script would cost upwards of $200 million – a number neither the studio or Bay wants.
Warners is reportedly considering “Lobo” as their answer to Fox’s “Deadpool” franchise – fourth wall breaking anti-heroes with cult followings. Lobo is a Czarnian bounty hunter who is nearly indestructible and drives a space-faring motorcycle across the cosmos in search of his next target.
Bay currently isn’t attached to direct any other projects.
