In September is was announced that Guy Ritchie’s next movie would be Lobo, a movie adaptation of DC Comics’ bounty hunter. At the time the intention was to start production early next year, however Ritchie recently called his directorial role into question while on the rounds promoting Sherlock Holmes (which is getting mixed-positive reviews).
“Is it a matter of fact that I’m doing it?” Ritchie asked when told of reports framing his participation in “Lobo” as a done deal. “I don’t think it’s a matter of fact. In fact, I can tell you it’s not a matter of fact.”
Supremely evasive when asked for clarification, Ritchie seemed intent on keeping the status of “Lobo” — and his involvement with the film — under wraps for the time being. “Isn’t there a fifth amendment or something?” he laughed.
Ritchie’s comments would seem to move the film back into the realm of “potential” and deflate a little of the buzz surrounding the project
It looks like Warner Bros. and Ritchie still have some talking to do, that is if he’s still interested in directing it. In the film 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 up with a small town teenage girl to stop the creatures.
