Barry Sonnenfeld to direct 'Lore'

By Matthew Dougherty,

Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld will direct the adaptation of the graphic novel Lore for Warner Bros.

The studio bought the project last April after four studios bartered seven figures for the film, according to Deadline.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is signed on to star in the movie which has a similar plotline to Men in Black but with a fantasy twist, rather than a science fiction one.

ComingSoon.net’s description of the plot says that mythological creatures used to exist in the fiction universe of the novel and that they are coming back. The heroes of the story are part of a secret organization that keeps these creatures at bay.

It makes sense that the studio chose Sonnenfeld as he directed all three of the Men in Black movies, most recently Men in Black 3, which was in theaters last May.

Lore will be produced by Andrew Lazar, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs.

No word yet on when the movie will be released or when production will start.
