Lobo, "the lone wolf" takes his name from the famous, best selling story by Ernest Thompson Seaton of his real-life hunting of Lobo, the last outlaw wolf of the wild west that allegedly had a price on its head of one thousand dollars. After an epic and moving personal struggle to outwit this highly intelligent beast, Seaton gained new respect for his quarry and resolved never to kill another wolf.

Director, Malcolm Mowbray says that he specifically liked the comedy he saw in the story. "I look for the embarrassing moments in everyday life. When you're trapped in a farce, it's not funny. It can be a nightmare. But it's funny to someone, or an audience who's watching."

Originally the production was to have been made in Texas. The novel, on which the film is based, was set in Austin, which is where the writer lived.

Production notes reveal that the producers instead filmed in Charleston, SC, because they wanted a more ethereal, romantic feel, evocative of Southern plantations and Spanish moss.
