Akiva Goldsman On <em>Lobo</em>

We have already heard from the writer/producer on his feeling toward Batman And Robin , as well as his thoughts for the proposed Swamp Thing reboot. Here we have his take on Lobo, and the Director that will bring the main man to the big screen, Guy Ritchie...

Ritchie wouldn't seem like the obvious choice to direct a movie like Lobo. Sure his next project, Sherlock Holmes, has loose comic book affiliations, but generally he likes to make movies about Laaaandan aaaaardmen and pepper his movies with voicovers that relay the entire plot, just in case you happen to be mentally challenged and cant follow it!(sorry, not a huge fan!)..anyway, Producer Akiva Goldsman feels Ritchie is just the man to unleash the Bastiche...

"There's something hyperbolic and authentic about a Guy Ritchie movie. His best movie are deeply, deeply stylized yet they are all grounded; there's a grit of stylization, which sounds like an oxymoron but it makes perfect sense when you've seen his films.

We've never seen Guy's sensibility married to a project with such a large special effects budget."

Goldsman said Ritchie will shoot a test scene in November -- "We've got the character design pretty much done," Goldsman said, "and the test will get us moving forward to the next step" -- and casting will be decided after that.

Despite Jeffrey Dean Morgan expressing interest..and being involved with Goldsman on The Losers, we haven't heard anything but rumor on the casting front so far.
