Dwayne Johnson and Barry Sonnenfeld to possibly team for Lore
Here's an interesting team up for an adaptation.
Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks to direct Dwayne Johnson in Lore. The film is an adaptation of Ashley Wood's comic from IDW about, "a secret order that defends the world against creatures thought to be mythological, but which actually exist."
Now, correct me if you disagree but, I've heard that the comic is only so-so. The art is great though, so maybe if they take a cue from that perhaps they could create something worth seeing. Apparently there was a mix of several directors who met for the job. The film was described as being "tonally similar to Men In Black", so I guess Sonnenfeld was fit for the job from the beginning. LORE was a hot project from the get-go, and many studios fought it out to get it, but it was Warner Bros. who made the snag.
Johnson is no stranger to the fantastical. I kind of like the idea of him being in something like this. I may not enjoy all of his movies, but I do enjoy him as an actor.
Cory Goodman (PRIEST) and Jeremy Lott wrote the script. That's the only part that scares me.
