Guy Ritchie to direct Lobo on the big screen
I had just read online that the former Mrs. Madonna Guy Ritchie has been tapped to direct the big screen version of the DC Comic bastich Lobo.
For those who read The Lobo Paramilitary Christmas and the Infanticide mini-series, I kind of have a feeling that this is probably going to be a bit more toned down version of Lobo seeing that most of the humor in those books probably wouldn't fly in this day and age.
Variety described the premise: Lobo 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.
I suppose if he uses his usual profanities of "frag," "Feetal's Gizz," and "bastich" the film shouldn't be too, too bad. I guess.
