‘Wonder Woman’ Writer Jason Fuchs Boards Comic Book Adaptation ‘Lobo’

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have hired “Wonder Woman” writer Jason Fuchs to adapt their long-in-development action-fantasy film “Lobo.”

Lobo originated in 1983 as an alien character working as a mercenary and bounty hunter in “Omega Men,” written by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. During the 1990s, a version of Lobo appeared as a parody of the Marvel superhero Wolverine. In both incarnations, the character enjoyed mindless violence and intoxication.

“San Andreas” director Brad Peyton is attached to direct “Lobo” with Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman producing.

Warner Bros. has been developing “Lobo” since 2009, when it hired Guy Ritchie to direct from a script by the late Don Payne in which the title character would have been a blue-skinned antihero who drives a motorcycle and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives.

Fuchs is writing “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot, for director Patty Jenkins. The superhero film will debut on June 23, 2017.

His previous credits include “Ice Age: Continental Drift” and “Pan.” He’s also writing the sci-fi drama “Luna Park” with Doug Liman directing and Tom Cruise starring.

Fuchs is an actor as well. He will soon be seen in the musical “La La Land” alongside Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. He’s represented by WME, Brookside Artist Management and Bloom Hergott.

The news was first reported by the Wrap.
