David Green to direct Dwayne Johnson in Lore


David Green, director of the low-budget film “Echo” (which sat on the shelf for years at Disney before being sold to Relativity), has signed on to direct Dwayne Johnson in the adaptation of the IDW book/graphic novel “Lore”, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott’s script fixes “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.”

“Men in Black” helmer Barry Sonnenfeld was previously attached to direct.
