MEN IN BLACK 3 Director Barry Sonnenfeld In Talks To Helm LORE Starring Dwayne Johnson

Despite recently being attached to a big screen adaptation of DC's Metal Men, the director of all three Men in Black movies is now in talks to helm the film based on IDW graphic novel Lore with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson attached to star.

Deadline reports that Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks to direct the big screen adaptation of Ashley Wood's IDW graphic novel, Lore, a series they describe as featuring "a secret order that defends the world against creatures thought to be mythological, but which actually exist." It has previously been describe as being similar in tone to the Men in Black franchise (surely making Sonnenfeld the perfect choice) and Warner Bros. came out on top when four major studios went to war for the rights earlier this year. Perhaps most exciting is the news that Dwayne Johnson is attached to star. Stay tuned for further details!
