Newbie feature helmer Dave Green (Echo) has signed on to direct IDW graphic novel adaptation Lore for Warner Bros. The studio won a bidding war for the project last year with Dwayne Johnson attached to star. The pc, about a secret order tasked with defending the world against creatures thought to be mythological, had Barry Sonnenfeld in talks to direct last fall. Sonnenfeld has exited the directors chair but will be credited as exec producer.
