While their most visible projects may be next summer’s Superman movie Man Of Steel and proposed Justice League, Wonder Woman and a rebooted Batman movies, Warner Brothers has been hard at work developing many of the characters from corporate sibling DC Entertainment for feature films.
One of those characters is the alien bounty hunter anti-hero Lobo and a new logline/plot description for the project has begun to surface on various industry tracking boards.
Lobo, a powerful alien bounty hunter, lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc.
The tracking board listing also confirms that Duane Johnson is attached to the project, presumably to play the lead. Interestingly though, writer Don Payne’s involvement has the caveat “(previously)” next to his name which leads me to think that producers Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are looking for a new scripter. The entry also has the spot for a director blank which suggests that Brad Peyton, who took over the project when Guy Ritchie dropped out, is no longer involved.
It looks like we’re still a long way to this movie coming to fruition.
