Brad Peyton, a Canadian film director, also one of the emerging and aspiring directors at Hollywood today was given the green light by Warner Bros. to direct and write a live action version of Lobo, DC Comics’ hard-rocking and interstellar alien bounty hunter. Peyton was the director of the Journey to the Center of the Earth’s sequel, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
For those of you who are not familiar with Lobo; he is an indestructible and cigar smoking alien bounty hunter with a badass motorcycle that he uses to travel from planet to planet. He looks like an alien counter of a Hell’s Angel actually. What’s more is that he is not your typical superhero; Lobo is more of an anti-hero of sorts so expect his violent tendencies from time to time.
With Warner Bros. move to give Peyton the job to do Lobo after being on-hold for sometime, after the rumored director Guy Ritchie withdrew from the project to direct Sherlock Holmes 2: The Game Of Shadows, could it be that they are finally starting to venture the superhero film market again that would give DC Comics fans the hopes of seeing they’re favorite like Wonder Woman?
Comparisons over Peyton and Ritchie have been done in a lot of film-related site in the web and obviously, Ritchie’s having the upper hand after directing the Sherlock Holmes franchise. On the hand, Peyton’s got to pull himself up from the sinkhole after failing to meet the expectations of moviegoers on his film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.
