Brad Peyton

Lobo vs Superman

The fine folks at Cinema Blend (who follow The Rock on twitter for workout tips and accidentally stumbled on this movie news) are reporting that Dwayne Johnson is working with Joel Silver and director Brad Peyton (Journey 2) to make a movie adaptation of the DC comic “Lobo” happen. The character, created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, is a bounty hunter with a bad attitude meant to be a play on The Punisher and Wolverine. He’s also often blue and might represent a solid challenge/opportunity for some great make-up work. The bottom line though? He’s a brute, and he’s built like a professional wrestler, so it’s fortunate that there’s one out there with some acting chops and personality. This isn’t a new project by any means, but it’s definitely a gutsy one that, if made, would hopefully have the bite necessary to be satisfying. At any rate, can someone get Johnson a fanged skull belt buckle already?

Director Brad Peyton had a nice little career going for himself, making movies that the whole family (read: anyone under 6) could enjoy like Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island; but being around all of the testosterone produced by The Rock on the Journey 2 set must have done something to his head, because his next project is looking decidedly less nice. Deadline Czarnia has word that the director has been hired by Warner Bros. to launch the next big DC Comics franchise. Which franchise would that be, exactly? The lightning-fast, Crank-inspired adventures of The Flash? Maybe a Game of Thrones-inspired look at the royal politics of the lost city of Atlantis, starring Aquaman? Nope, wrong on both counts. For some reason, Warners has decided to make a movie about DC’s foul-mouthed, drunken, murderous, intergalactic bounty hunting, 90s-era superstar Lobo.

Kevin Carr

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr dresses up in his Jedi robes and grabs his lightsaber, heading to the theater to see the 3D re-release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. While there, he faces a sea of estrogen as ladies of all type swarm into the multiplex to see Channing Tatum’s abs multiflex. After using his lightsaber to break through the wall of pre-Valentine’s Day ladies, he faces more obstacles with twentysomething dudes heading out to see Safe House and obnoxious families to see Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Fortunately for Kevin, he is able to dispatch everyone with his Rock-inspired “pec pop of love.” It was an early Valentine’s Day massacre.

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr is all giddy because he’s been invited to a “Dinner for Winners” (though no one has the heart to tell him it’s really a Dinner for Schmucks). He also puts on his 3D glasses to take a gander at some furry spies in Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. Finally, he squeals with excitement about the new Zefron film, but then weeps uncontrollably because Universal didn’t screen it in advance for him.
