Fucking fuckbabies. From Variety:
Warner Bros. has locked Guy Ritchie to direct “Lobo,” the live action
adaptation of the DC Comics drama about an alien interstellar bounty
Don Payne wrote the most recent script draft, and Joel Silver, Akiva
Goldsman and Andrew Rona will produce. Pic is a co-production between
Silver Pictures and Weed Road.
Ritchie will make the film his follow-up to “Sherlock Holmes,” the
Silver-produced film that stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Rachel
McAdams, which Warner Bros. opens Christmas Day.
Production on “Lobo” begins early next year. The character
originated in 1983 in “Omega Men,” written by Roger Slifer and Keith
Giffen. Lobo has had several comic incarnations. In the film, he is a
seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily
muscled anti-hero who 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.
WB is aiming for a PG-13 rating. Pic will be strong on visual effects,
and Ritchie will bring the irreverent, gruff tone of past films like
“Snatch” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”
First of all: Bull and shit. This isn’t happening, just like Deadman isn’t happening. Second of all, that sounds terrible. Lobo on Earth? That little give is going to teach him how to love, isn’t she? Fuck. Third: What the fuck is your problem, Warner Bros./DC? Are you freaking out about the Marvel-Disney deal more than anybody, and that’s why you keep announcing all these movie adaptations to stay in the limelight, even though everyone knows that none of them will get made?
STOP IT. YOU’RE FREAKING NERDS OUT UNNECESSARILY AND JUST EMBARRASSING YOURSELVES. SO JUST STOP IT.
