Lobo live action-movie?? Friggin' sweet!

Holy frag! Look out, according to a report published in Variety online, there's gonna be a live-action Lobo movie to be directed by Guy Ritchie (that's Madonna's former husband for you noobs!). How cool is that? I've always thought some filmaker's gonna pick up the character and turn it into a screen character...so I'm glad that I'm right! Boy, I've been reading Lobo since I first started collecting comics so naturally I'm all excited! I just love the sarcastic violence portrayed by Lobo and his no-nonsense approach to everything. I'm eager to see how his comic personae is translated onto the big screen.
Word is out that Robert Downey Jr's gonna play the white-skinned 'bastich' (pardon the ambiguos term!) himself! After Ironman, Downey Jr's attempting to cement his name as yet another superhero, but this time within the realm of DC Comics.

Excerpts from the article:

"Warner Bros. has locked Guy Ritchie to direct “Lobo,” the live action adaptation of the DC Comics drama about an alien interstellar bounty hunter. Don Payne wrote the most recent script draft, and Joel Silver, Akiva Goldsman and Andrew Rona will produce. Pic is a co-production between Silver Pictures and Weed Road.

Ritchie will make the film his follow-up to “Sherlock Holmes,” the Silver-produced film that stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Rachel McAdams, which Warner Bros. opens Christmas Day. Production on “Lobo” begins early next year. The character originated in 1983 in “Omega Men,” written by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. Lobo has had several comic incarnations. In the film, he is a seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled anti-hero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenaged girl to stop the creatures. This film is slated for a PG-13 rating."
