The Fringe: Violent Tom Jane Punisher Short Film, The Rock On Lobo Rumors

The Fringe is a place where non-horror genre films can get some play on Shock.  These films might be sci-fi, fantasy or action – and certainly contain some horror elements – but will likely be light on scares, or, straight-up “horror.”  Still, they might be of interest to you.

This morning, a double dose of comic book-themed Fringe goodness.  What?  You thought because Comic-Con was over, the news slows down?  Not a chance.  First up, The Rock addressed rumors that he may play Lobo in a screen adaptation of the DC comic book.

“Rumors of me possibly playing LOBO are true. Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun,” the actor said via his Twitter account.

Imagine that?  The Rock as Lobo.  I want in.  If the main man takes on the “Main Man,” he’d be reuniting with Peyton, who directed him in Journey 2: Mysterious Island.

Warner Bros. has set Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton for their DC Comics adaptation, Lobo, Deadline reports.

Created in 1984 by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, Lobo is a Czarnian (originally Velorpian) bounty hunter who, as a nearly indestructible anti-hero, drives a space-faring motorcycle across the cosmos in search of his next target.
