Producer Joel Silver told the Los Angeles Times that Guy Ritchie is no longer attached to direct Warner Bros. Pictures’ adaptation of the DC Comics title Lobo because the studio is moving forward with Sherlock Holmes 2.
“I don’t think he’s going to do it now,” Silver, who is producing both properties, said. “The studio wants us and Guy to focus on making another ‘Sherlock Holmes.’ So I think we’re going to be doing that. But we’re seeing what happens with this. Everybody is analyzing everything. It’s all kind of happening right now as we talk.”
Asked if that means Lobo will be postponed until Ritchie is free, Silver said he thinks they will more likely go with a different director.
