If you were thinking there was not another comic book left to be adapted for the big screen, you thought wrong. It looks like the Green Lantern has been given the green light to proceed with production.
According to First Showing, DC’s Green Lantern, nearly a year after the news broke of a possible movie, is now scheduled to begin filming in spring, 2009.
Producer, Donald De Line is reported to have said the first draft of the script has been written. However, nothing else has been confirmed at this stage, but according to De Line they are ‘gearing up to start shooting early spring’.
At this stage, no director is attached to the movie, nor have any actors been announced, but we at the Movie Moron HQ are very excited about the upcoming movie.
For those not familiar with the comic, the Green Lantern corps is a group of universe protecting superheroes each granted with a power ring that gives the one who possesses it control of the physical world, provided that they have enough strength to wield it. However, the comic book series has seen many of the Green Lanterns join, leave, and then come back again, so it will be interesting to see which characters make it into the film.
Possible release date for the film could be 2010.
