Akiva Goldsman Talks Lobo

The Los Angeles Times talked to Akiva Goldsman about the upcoming Guy Ritchie-directed Lobo adaptation. Here’s an excerpt:

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.”

Goldsman added: “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.

In the interview, Goldsman also addresses the Batman & Robin failure and projects in the works like Jonah Hex and Swamp Thing. You can read it in full here.
