HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
As you've probably noticed, Hollywood has taken teens as their target audience and thus we get either morbidly dark flicks for puberty boys or shallow Twilight flicks for girls. Yet, another movie adaptation in the long line of YA novel adaptations will be the one for THE IRON TRIAL. It is an interesting one, since the book hasn't even been released yet, it is scheduled for 2014, and it will be a five book saga
And here's a nice piece of news for all of you who love comic books and super heroes. "Movie Web" reported this weekend that Warner Bros. and DC Comics will collaborate on the movie adaptation of DC's popular comic hero LOBO. The character is an interstellar bounty hunter and mercenary who travels the galaxy looking for his next target. The character was created in 1980s but became even more popular in the 1990s, when he was resurrected as a renegade biker. Two years ago there were talks that Guy Richie might direct the adaptation but he left the project in order to shoot SHERLOCK HOLMES. The film will now be helmed by Brad Peyton, who had a big hit this spring with JOURNEY II: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND.
