Transformers director Michael Bay could helm the forthcoming Lobo movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the divisive director is in the frame to take on the movie, which would be based on the DC Comics character of the same name, so long as a budget can be agreed on. At present – and utilising the current draft of the script – the film would cost $200 million, which is far more than either Bay or Warner Bros want to spend on this picture.

If a more cost effective script can be presented, then Bay could sign on to direct the feature. Although, it must be stated  he’s not even been offered the job yet. Well, at least not officially anyway.

File this one under the heading of ‘rumour’ for now… but a rumour that may hold some truth.
