Will Guy Ritchie Direct 'Lobo'?

MTV News had the chance to speak with "Sherlock Holmes" director Guy Ritchie at a press junket in London. and they asked him about the upcoming adaptation of DC Comics’ "Lobo."

Back in September, it was reported by Variety that Ritchie was attached to direct "Lobo."

However, the reports of Ritchie's attachment to the project could be a bit premature as Ritchie himself said his involvement is not a fact.

"Is it a matter of fact that I'm doing it?" Ritchie asked when told of reports framing his participation in "Lobo" as a done deal. "I don't think it's a matter of fact. In fact, I can tell you it's not a matter of fact."

From that claim it would seem that DC/WB has been courting Ritchie for "Lobo" and perhaps a preliminary deal has even been put in place. But from Ritchie’s statement it seems that the dotted line has yet to be signed and that Variety may have jumped the gun in their initial report.

Did you have your heart set on Guy Ritchie directing "Lobo" or do you perhaps see a window of opportunity for a different director?

More news to come! Catch ya' later!
