BREAKING: Dwayne Johnson is attached to Lore, a pic that was just bought by Warner Bros as a star vehicle for Johnson  stars in the upcoming GI Joe 2, Empire State, and Pain and Gain. Cory Goodman is writing with Jeremy Lott. The pic is based on the IDW graphic novel and Andrew Lazar, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs are producing. Deal was in the seven-figures. The graphic novel has been compared to Men in Black, with mythological creatures. Four studios bid on it.

WME reps Johnson, Goodman by WME, Lott by Paradigm and both scribes are managed by Adam Goldworm of Aperture. IDW’s Ted Adams and the graphic novel’s creator, Ashley Wood, will be exec producers along with Miri Yoon. IDW’s repped by CAA and Circle of Confusion.
