@TheRock I'm dying to know. Are the Lobo rumors true? I've seen them all around, but nothing to confirm it. #RockTalk
@WritingAWonder Rumors of me possibly playing LOBO are true. Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun.. #RockTalk
The premise as described by Variety: "Lobo 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 teenage girl to stop the creatures."
Should Johnson take on the role, it will once again reunite him with Peyton, who also directed him in JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND.
