David Green to Direct Dwayne Johnson in Lore

Echo director David Green has replaced Barry Sonnenfeld in the director’s chair for Lore, an adaptation of the IDW graphic novel, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The book is described as follows: “In times past, the world was full of mythical creatures long since held at bay by the secret society of Shepherds. But when the Shepherds’ line of succession is broken, a reluctant hero finds her life threatened from every quarter. And the creatures are coming back: will the Earth be ready for their return?”

The graphic novel was written by Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise. The movie’s script was written by Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott.

The Warner Bros. release is being produced by Mad Chance’s Andrew Lazar along with Circle of Confusion’s David Alpert and Rick Jacobs. Ted Adams and Ashley Wood are executive producing with Sonnenfeld. Adam Goldworm is co-producing.
