THR reports that director David Green is attached to helm Lore, an adaptation of an IDW graphic novel by Wood and T.P. Louise.
Currently Dwayne Johnson is attached to star in the sci-fi action picture. The film has a script by Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott. It tells the story of a secret society of shepherds (they herd monsters) that has 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. picked up the title in April 2012 and as of last September was negotiating with Barry Sonnenfeld to direct. Sonnenfeld and the studio couldn't agree on a budget, so Sonnenfeld stepped aside (he will still receive an executive producer credit).
The project is being produced by Andrew Lazar along with Circle of Confusion's David Alpert and Rick Jacobs. Ted Adams and Ashley Wood are executive producing with Sonnenfeld.
