Martin Campbell to Direct Green Lantern
In the race to the big screen, it appears that Green Lantern may just be gaining an edge over his fellow DC Comics heroes.
According to Variety, Warner Bros. is in talks with (read: final negotiations) with Casino Royale director Martin Campbell to direct a film based on the Green Lantern.
As the trade reports, this would make Green Lantern the studio’s next major superhero film (and most likely franchise), most-likely jumping ahead of a third Christopher Nolan-helmed Batman film, a revival of the Superman film franchise, or the on-again, off-again Justice League film poroject.
As Newsarama has been tracking, the screenplay for Green Lantern was written by Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green and Greg Berlanti (who at one time had been considered to direct the film).The trade also reports that the film version of Jonah Hex, starring Josh Brolin and directed by Jimmy Hayward , will beging filming in April
