An unlikely Lobo?

10.27.2009

Guy Ritchie and producer Joel Silver are planning to bring DC Comics' pale-skinned, killcrazy alien LOBO to big screens... but how?

According to Mania, they're still trying to figure that out. Would it be someone with experience and a physique, such as Dwayne Johnson, Ritchie regular Jason Statham or his ROCKnROLLA star Gerard Butler? Will they go the all-CG performance-capture Gollum-style route? Or will it be a costume-enhanced human a la HELLBOY?

Whatever method they utilize to bring the obscenely muscular intergalactic bastich to life, Mania claims a name is being kicked around as a possibility: go-to genre guy and voice actor Clancy Brown, best known as HIGHLANDER's heinous head-collector The Kurgan.

The filmmaker and studio's goal is apparently to get rolling next year, and bring the hyperviolent Last Czarnian to Earth for a PG-13 adventure that finds the ornery hitman hunting fugitives while also dealing with a small-town teenage girl. (I got a few ideas on how that would never get a PG-13 rating.)

A 2002 student film (part of AFI director's studies program) featured Andrew Bryniarski (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE's Leatherface) as LOBO:

Rock Johnson all the way!

It's a no-brainer.

And Morgan Freeman is too old for the part.

Clancy Brown is a good choice, but I actually think Brown would play a better Venom (Eddie Brock).

LOL, this was awesome. Whoever played the Easter Bunny needs to move on up. For a student film it's not even half bad. The direction needs vast work, but the script was pretty hilarious.

Personally I'd like to see Lobo's fun side when he's hunting and killing. This guy was serious throughout, and Lobo leans more towards The Punisher if killing made him happy. Great lines, too! lol

Wheres the raunch?

usually i dont gripe about movies that i dont finance...but i dont consider the following a gripe. i do wish theyd dump the need for PG13. like mostly every one else, id like to see a lobo film be violent and raunchy (both in the realm of "overly"). but seeing as im not paying for this to be made, its not my call. i'll see how i feel as they further this along. whether or not they get my cash, remains to be seen.

A) if this isn't R...

...Someone needs to be tortured and dragged thru space behind an interstellar motercycle by a rusty hook with space dolphins pecking bites off their flesh. and B) The Kurgan is popular, but seriously? How about Lex Luthor? Shawshank? CARNIVALE? with no offense...c'mon.

Blah

Making Lobo PG-13 (and making him blue) is a really bad decision. It kills everything fun about the character. This should be rated R and instead of a 13 year old girl he should hook up with an interstellar hooker. Also, Lobo's space dolphins should make an appearance...if for nothing else than to see dolphins flying in space on the big screen. LOL.
