Heat Vision are reporting that Warner Bros. Pictures have tapped David Green to helm ‘Lore,’ an adaptation of an IDW book/graphic novel written by husband-and-wife team Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise that has Dwayne Johnson attached to star, pending scheduling. The sci-fi actioner tells of a secret society of shepherds (they herd monsters) that has long held the line on the encroachment of mythological creatures and when the succession line is broken in modern days, a woman finds herself shouldering the responsibility to stop the creatures’ return.
Warner Bros. Pictures picked up ‘Lore’ in April 2012 and by September was negotiating with ‘Men in Black’ director Barry Sonnenfeld. Sonnenfeld and the studio couldn’t agree on a budget so Sonnenfeld stepped off (but will receive an executive producer credit). David Green made his directorial debut making a low budget sci-fi movie for Disney titled ‘Echo.’ But the project, with a budget in the $5 million range, sat on the shelf as Disney pondered how to open it before eventually selling it to Relativity. Echo, which tells of teens who receive mysterious messages on their cell phones, has a January 10th, 2014 release date. The synopsis for ‘Lore’ graphic novel is as follows.
Striking International Poster For Ron Howard’s ‘Rush’ – Starring Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl & Olivia Wilde
Universal Pictures has set loose this new international poster for Ron Howard’s Formula One racing drama, ‘Rush.’ Penciled in for a September 13th release in the UK and a September 27th bow in the US, ‘Rush’ centers on the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda and British driver James Hunt. ‘Inglorious Basterds’ star Daniel Brühl is playing Lauda with Chris Hemsworth taking on the role of Hunt. The likes of Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader) co-star. Helmed by Oscar-winner Ron Howard, the script for ‘Rush’ is by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen).

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Howard, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Morgan and Brian Oliver (Black Swan) and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Todd Hallowell and Tim Bevan. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America.
