This will be Warners and DC’s follow up to the Josh Brolin fronted Jonah Hex, due out sometime this year.
SuperheroHype broke the news today, reporting a post on visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas’s blog which is neatly succinct:
Wow! Been a long time since I posted! But today is a day worth posting about!
Green Lantern got the official green light today! And not a second too soon – only 10 weeks out from shooting!
While it’s great news we are a go – now we have to actually get our prep done in 10 weeks!
Campbell’s edgy, dark thriller Edge of Darkness, starring Mel Gibson, is out soon and this should prove a suitable tangent to Campbell’s career; it’s exciting to see directors such as Campbell and Kenneth Branagh joining Christopher Nolan in moving into the comic book movie, more proof perhaps of the growth of a genre to mainstream success.
While I know my comic books to a certain extent, The Green Lantern is a new one on me – will those in the know comfirm it’s worth waiting for?
