Indie director Dave Green has signed on to replace Barry Sonnenfeld on the Warner Bros. comic book adaptation Lore, which Dwayne Johnson has been attached to star in since April 2012. Barry Sonnenfeld is still serving as executive producer on the project.
The screenplay is based on the IDW comic book series written by Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise, which follows a secret society of shepherds who prevent mythological creatures from attacking Earth. When the chain of command is broken, a young woman must step up to prevent an all-out war.
Andrew Lazar is producing alongside David Alpert and Rick Jacobs, with Ted Adams and Ashley Wood. No production schedule was given.
