Mike Killam

The RockDwayne "the Rock" Johnson spoke with MTV News during a round of media appearances promoting his upcoming film, Hercules. During the interview, the WWE Champion was asked about a role in DC Comics adaption, Lobo, which the Rock denied. 

When asked if he was involved with the film, Rock said "I was for a minute, but then it kind of just went away. As things happen in Hollywood – for a minute, I was interested in it, and then it went away." 

Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) was in talks to helm the film, but at this point almost nothing is known about Lobo, or if the film will even continue into pre-production.
