This from Variety:, "Warners is aiming for a PG-13 rating. Pic will be strong on visual effects, and Ritchie will bring the irreverent, gruff tone of past films like "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels."

I am not to thrilled about the PG-13 rating, but hey, were getting a freaking Lobo movie. FINALLY!!!!

Word is production is set to begin next year. Don Payne will pen the script(The Simpsons, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, My Super Ex-Girlfriend), with Joel Silver, Akiva Goldsman and Andrew Rona producing the Lobo space odyssey.

bring in an unknown. someone that can make the role his own, and make it so that he can still play it after, say, 20 years?

I can see it now: "On may 15th 2015, two aliens will colide. For the first time in the history of cinema, Lobo and Superman will have the bigest battle the world has ever seen, and this time, Superman is not fighting just for us, he is fighting for his own life and freedom. Join Lobo and Superman on an epic journey as they become allies from enemies in order to overcome the biggest threat they have ever faced!" Lobo vs. Superman, rated PG-13 for space violence, crude humor, frighting images and sexuality.

Oooh SirPrize fer Lobo!
Ryden - 9/2/2009, 3:41 PM
A LOBO movie will would be awesome, im not crazy about the PG-13 rating though
Spock - 9/2/2009, 3:47 PM
What u cant' do Lobo Pg13, it was dum down the superman anime adventures when he was on there. But this will be interesting to see. Deceased Kevin Todd Smith for Lobo.






texasboy - 9/2/2009, 3:54 PM
what about a couple of other quality DC characters mixed in? someone for Lobo to mix it up with.
BubastisTheLynx - 9/2/2009, 3:57 PM
PG-13? This is going to be like Terminator Salvation all over again.
mativ16 - 9/2/2009, 3:58 PM
Noooo! I hate Guy Ritchie. I'm personally not a fan. I wonder which one of is characters you won't be able to tell what the hell they're saying.
Denn1s - 9/2/2009, 4:02 PM
cool! bring on the bastich.. although, who's gonna watch this movie other than the fanboys?
jman1977 - 9/2/2009, 4:07 PM
Ron was cool but your right about him defining hellboy, I think your Mikey Rourke choice was spot on dude!
GUNSMITH - 9/2/2009, 4:08 PM
I SMELL A NEW POLL-WHO SHOULD PLAY LOBO?
DDD - 9/2/2009, 4:22 PM
SirPrize for Lobo! LOL

I'll play Doomsday! After SirPrise (As Lobo.) and Superman beat the ever-lovin' Krap outta each other they can beat the Krap outta me! Ha ha ha ha!!!!!!! (What the He-E-double hockey sticks am I LAUGHING about???!!! :( :D

Really? Guy Ritchie? I don't think he's the right director for this job. Maybe Timur Bekmambetov could do a good job. I really liked Wanted the movie, and I don't think the direction was one of it's problems.
DDD - 9/2/2009, 4:25 PM
But seriously David Batista for Lobo! He did a half way decent job of acting on Smallville! He was a Phantom Zone baddie/beastie, if ya remember?

Lobo needs to be a tall guy and Batista is 6'5".
JYCowboy - 9/2/2009, 4:25 PM
Ahh, cameo by Green Lanturn? lets see Lobo punch that Ryan Renolds GL.

"Out of da' way, Spacecop. Dolphians need fishies and this Bastich needs redeeming."
Watchtower31 - 9/2/2009, 4:27 PM
Loos like DC's trying to make a come back with better movies. We're going to start getting better movies from DC and it'll become bigger than Marvel.

They'll probably change the rating when they start making it. Since Lobo like the darkest character there is and Guy Richies movies are almost always R.

I wonder what roll Jason Statham will get since he's in a bunch of Richie movies ;) lol.

Micky Rourke for Lobo would be the best.
InTylerWeTrust - 9/2/2009, 4:27 PM
Kevin Durand would be a good Lobo IMO. I saw it suggested in one of my articles, and I like the idea.
DDD - 9/2/2009, 4:30 PM
Kevin Durand would be perfect with his personality and all! And he has worn prosthetics before on Dark Angel as Joshua the giant dog-boy!

An' he's 6'7".
DDD - 9/2/2009, 4:39 PM
I officially nominate Kevin Durand as Lobo! (Just in-case there's a poll!) Good one, @Tyler!
InTylerWeTrust - 9/2/2009, 4:46 PM
Well, it wasn't my choice. I got it from some one else hehe :)

stupify_me - 9/2/2009, 4:46 PM
Jefferey Dean Morgan would be kind of a cool choice that I saw someone on another site mention.
dancingmonkey08 - 9/2/2009, 4:46 PM
Wow, I go away for a couple of days and a ton of articles appear! lol But anyway, Lobo movie should be awesome if its done right! Dont know what to say about Guy Ritchie directing it. If Guy does a god job on Sherlock Holmes, Im all for him directing a Lobo movie

Def. Mickey Rourke
GOZILLRA - 9/2/2009, 4:54 PM
Hey wassup.....New here....Site is cool....Been fan lookin in for long time....thought i would holla at yall finally....
DDD - 9/2/2009, 4:54 PM
Mickey Rourke is only 5'11". The guy they have playing Supes is usually about 6'3". It wouldn't work, IMO. Need a big tall actor to play Lobo!
undeadpool - 9/2/2009, 4:54 PM
have long dreamt of a lobo flick but this is gonna be garbage
DDD - 9/2/2009, 4:56 PM
Hey, @GOZILLRA! A warm Welcome to ya! :D
Spock - 9/2/2009, 4:56 PM
Kevin Durand would be my 2nd Choice.
GOZILLRA - 9/2/2009, 4:57 PM
thanks DDD....
DDD - 9/2/2009, 4:58 PM
Hmmm, Jeffrey Dean Morgan would be great as Lobo! Another great choice!
stupify_me - 9/2/2009, 4:59 PM
Yea DDD something I would of never thought of, but someone mentioned him and I was just like "Hmm yea that works" I think it's a good choice. He just kind of naturally looks like Lobo anyway lol.
GOZILLRA - 9/2/2009, 5:01 PM
i vote for ROB ZOMBIE....he def has the look...
