Green Lantern Movie Update Part 3
Wow, there seems to be a bit of news around at the moment on this highly anticipated project. Anyway, here’s a quote from ComicCon.com about the current state of the script:
Along with working on this new direction for Spider-Man, Guggenheim’s also involved in one of the upcoming superhero films that has comic fans turning green with anticipation. “I’ve been working my ass off on Green Lantern,” he said, then laughed. “I’m ready for a weekend off. I really can’t say too much about it. I’ve sworn a blood oath of secrecy. I will tell you it features Hal Jordan and is an incredibly faithful rendition of the character. It honors everything everyone loves about the hero. We approach it from a fan’s perspective. Every step of the way, we ask ourselves what we want to see and what the fans will want to see. I think we have a script that will actually satisfy on those levels. Right now I’m just doing a rewrite for the studio with Greg [Berlanti] and Michael [Green]. We’ll turn that in next week. We just keep moving forward. It’s really good stuff!”
Sounds pretty dang exciting. With Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and next year’s Watchmen, seems DC and Warners are finally getting their shit together with regards to their superhero film properties. Green Lantern has the potential to be a superhero Star Wars. Lets keep those ring fingers crossed!
