In the last 15 years, Barry Sonnenfeld hasn’t had much luck outside the Men In Black franchise, but he’s hoping that will change as the director Barry Sonnenfeld is now in talks to take the helm on Warner Bros.’ fantasy adaptation Lore, according to Deadline.
Dwayne Johnson signed up to star in April, with Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott writing the screenplay, adapted from the graphic novel by Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise. The story is set in a world where a secret society of Shepherds guard against creatures from folklore that actually exist. When the chain of command is broken, a young hero must do whatever it takes to stop these beasts.
Barry Sonnenfeld last directed this past summer’s Men in Black 3, which took in over $620 million worldwide. It isn’t known when Lore might shoot.
