Guy Richie to direct a Lobo Movie

As it has been reported everywhere, Guy Richie is to be doing a Lobo film that is set to start production in 2010.

Lobo is one of my all time favourite characters since I was first introduced to him back with The Last Czarnian in the early 90’s and I followed the character up until the end of his ongoing series which finished with issue 64 in July 1999

Now with the movie coming out I’m all for it and I really hope they treat the character as Alan Grant had been writing for the character but there are a couple of things that are itching at me about it.

From Variety:

Production on “Lobo” begins early next year. The character originated in 1983 in “Omega Men,” written by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. Lobo has had several comic incarnations. In the film, he is a seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled anti-hero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenaged girl to stop the creatures.

Ok so I know that he is larger than most, virtually indestructible and heavily muscled but why do they have him as Blue Skinned?

As far as I know he’s never been blue and if anything they would use blue for the shading on him at the colouring stage.

That being said I will look forward to this and if it’s as good as the short film that came out the mid 2000’s I’ll be happy.
