Lore gets Barry Sonnenfeld as director

The comic Lore is basically MIB for mythical creatures, so getting MIB, MIIB, and MIIIB director Barry Sonnenfeld sounds like a good deal. Add that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is attached and it sounds even better. The Lore comic is made by Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise and features Shepherds that hold back mythical creatures from causing problems. Except the line of Shepherds is broken and a replacement is chosen, thus leading to drama fit for visual storytelling.

The screenplay by Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott led to a bidding war between Warner Brothers, Paramount, and Sony. Warners won on a seven figure deal.

With The Rock attached and the studios excited because the film at least has enough good stuff to get people interested, maybe we’ll end up with a fun fantasy romp. And it’s cool how I didn’t make a joke about Lore also being the name of Data’s brother….WHOOPS!!
