Warner Brothers are planning on making a film version of Lore, and Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks to direct. It’s a good fit, for Lore will be a Sci-Fi action thriller. It is adapted from a comic of the same name illustrated by Australian artist Ashley Wood and written by his wife T.P. Louise. Not much else is known about it (unless you have read the comic of course…).
“a young man who reluctantly becomes a member of an elite secret order charged with protecting humanity from the beasts of folklore who invade our world.”
So, expect the story of Grimm, but as light as TV’s Beauty and the Beast (with Ron Perlman). It will need guns – lots of guns – to have any chance of success.
My prediction: Sonnenfeld will pass, a lesser-known director will take it on, and because Ashley Wood is an executive producer, it will be dark and interesting, perhaps similar to Sin City or Dark City.
