If The Lobo Movie Happens At All, It Won’t Be With The Rock

Plans for a Lobo movie appear to have just blown away on the wind, leaving Dwayne TR Johnson behind and trying to explain to MTV:

It was [happening] for a minute, but then it kind of just went away as things happen in Hollywood. For a minute, [I] was interested in it, and then it went away.

Awww. I know how he feels. Once, I made it home from the fun fair with a nice shiny new helium balloon. All the way from the fair to home. Three miles. Then I thought I’d experiment. I’d let my balloon float up to the kitchen ceiling, over and over. Fun! And then I thought I’d experiment outside.

And up it went. And up. And up. And up.

And then it went away.

The sadness still haunts my dreams, three whole weeks thirty five years later.

I’d guess that director Brad Peyton took a pass at reworking the Lobo script, sat down with Warner Bros. for an update and they went cool on the project for whatever ineffable rationale they could muster that afternoon.

Or it might simply have been a casualty of the studio’s parting of the ways with producer Joel Silver.

Either way, I’m not sure it was a project with too much on its side. Probably better for all involved to move on.

And… having said that, yes, I’m aware that Johnson’s next film is Brett Ratner’s Hercules. I mean… we have copies of The Family Man and Tower Heist in this house and they’re not on fire or anything. I’m just not going to blanket hate everything Ratner ever looks at before he’s even made it even if that does seem to be part of the Online Film Writer job description.
