"Lobo" ist die Verfilmung der gleichnamigen Comic-Serie...
Lobo ist ein ausserirdischer Kopfgeldjäger, dem seine gewaltige, übermenschliche Körperkraft und seine angeborenen Heilfähigkeiten eine grosse Hilfe sind. Er trinkt Bier, raucht Zigarren, flucht, hört mit Vorliebe Heavy Metal und bewegt sich auf einer Art Weltraum-Motorrad fort, das er wie ein Pferd durch einmaliges Pfeifen jederzeit herbeirufen kann...
Die Comic-Verfilmung "Lobo" kommt wohl nicht vor 2013 in die Kinos...
Übrigens: Regisseur Scott Leberecht kümmerte sich 2002 um eine "Lobo"-Realverfilmung für das American Film Institute. Der 15 minütige Kurzfilm basiert auf dem Comic "The Lobo Paramilitary Christmas Special" und wurde mit einem Budget von 2.400 US-Dollar gedreht. Lobo wurde darin von Andrew Bryniarski verkörpert und Michael Allen gibt den Weihnachtsmann.

[...] director Guy Ritchie has set aside the planned "Lobo" film to clear his schedule for a fast-tracked "Holmes" sequel, according to producer Joel Silver. [...]
Does that mean "Lobo" will be postponed until Ritchie is free, or is the plan to move on with a new director?
"I would guess a dfferent director," said Silver, who is producing "Lobo" with Akiva Goldsman and Andrew Rona. "It's all happening at once now. Everybody is talking about everything .... It's an ongoing conversation. [...]"
Silver said "Lobo" remains a viable project. In the 1980s, the character was a wickedly funny parody of the antiheroes Wolverine and Punisher, characters that now have a combined seven film appearances to their credit.
"It was created as a rebuttal to the Marvel characters and his vest said 'Bite me fanboy,' " Silver pointed out. "It was very much a response to Wolverine and Punisher and the other characters and I think now that makes it fresh [for moviegoers]. We're working on it now and it will be nice to put it together and make it happen." [...]
"The Goon" creator Eric Powell has revealed that he has finished the script for the upcoming CG animated film for director David Fincher and Blur Studios.
"I just finished writing the script a few months back, and Blur is working on a lot of test stuff," Powell explained in an interview with Comic Book Resources. "Fincher is working on a film right now, so we're waiting for him to get some space so we can start showing some of this stuff off. I'm pretty happy with everything so far. We've just got to work to get to the next point. This is a slow, long process."
However, Powell was unable to say whether Fincher would direct "The Goon" or take on the role of a producer. "David's going to be heavily involved," Powell said. "I've worked with him and Blur quite a bit to get the screenplay together, and it's been a great experience so far." [...]
Hero Complex sprach kürzlich mit dem Autor Akiva Goldsman...
[...] "Lobo" is being directed by Guy Ritchie, which sounds like an odd fit -- he's rarely succeeded in stories that go past London and this one would take him off-planet -- but Goldsman says he's thrilled with the fit.
"There's something hyperbolic and authentic about a Guy Ritchie movie. His best movie are deeply, deeply stylized yet they are all grounded; there's a grit of stylization, which sounds like an oxymoron but it makes perfect sense when you've seen his films."
Goldsman added: "We've never seen Guy's sensibility married to a project with such a large special effects budget. "
Goldsman said Ritchie will shoot a test scene in November -- "We've got the character design pretty much done," Goldsman said, "and the test will get us moving forward to the next step" -- and casting will be decided after that. [...]

Warner Bros. has locked Guy Ritchie to direct "Lobo," the live action adaptation of the DC Comics drama about an alien interstellar bounty hunter.
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."
Steve Richards and Kerry Foster will be executive producers. [...]

Guy Ritchie has signed on to direct his first superhero movie, "Lobo," a big-screen translation of the DC Comics anti-hero.
Silver Pictures is co-producing the Warners production with Weed Road. Joel Silver, Akiva Goldsman, and Andrew Rona are producing.
Lobo is an blue-skinned cigar-chomping alien who is an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. The character is one of DC’s more recent creations (he was introduced in the 1980s by creators Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen) and for a brief run in the 1990s, was one of comicdom’s most popular characters.
Lobo was meant to serve as a parody of violent heroes such as Wolverine and the Punisher, with his stories featuring a nihilistic streak tinged with dark comedy and excessive violence. (One story had him killing his daughter and all his illegitimate children that she had amassed to rub him out.)
Don Payne wrote the script.
Jon Berg is shepherding for Warners, which is looking to begin production early next year. Gregory Noveck oversees for DC.
Steve Richards and Kerry Foster are exec producing.
Doug Liman was previously attached to direct the project, though Silver, who has been developing the project for the last 10 years, was looking to reunite with Ritchie, with whom he just wrapped "Sherlock Holmes."
Ritchie, repped by CAA, is also attached to direct "The Gamekeeper," based on the Virgin Comics title.

there is not a Lobo movie at the moment. The script for a Lobo movie, however, has just been completed. You’d think this would be good news, Lobo is a crazy bastich who kills people all over the place and can give Superman a run for his money. The whole Lobo character has been based of mindless violence, an excess of it. It will be like that last Rambo movie, only it will actually have something at least resembling a story, the body count will just be the same.
Then producer Joel Silver announced that it is looking like a PG-13 movie. Don’t get me wrong, the children need movies to see too. Lobo is not one of them. He is a space bounty hunter that is the last member of his species because he killed the rest of them. He exists to inflict pain on others. He has no morals. He rides a motorcycle without a helmet. If you want a PG-13 movie use a character like Aquaman, not the Main Man. Lobo deserves a gory, profanity laced, and violence filled movie to call his very own.
