This summer’s R.I.P.D., which looked like nothing so much as Men in Black with dead people, was a huge flop for Universal. Indeed, by some measures, it’s one of the biggest box office bombs of all time.
But perhaps because the original Men in Black franchise is still doing pretty well for Sony, Warner Bros. remains eager to launch a similar movie of its own. Last year, they started discussions with MIB director Barry Sonnenfeld to helm the MIB-esque Lore, based on an IDW comic book.
Sonnenfeld has since departed the project, but now they’ve brought relative newcomer David Green (not to be confused with David Gordon Green) on board to replace him. Dwayne Johnson remains attached to star. Hit the jump to learn more about the movie and its new helmer.
