Production for the film is expected to begin in January based on a screenplay by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. Green Lantern will be directed by Goldeneye and Casino Royale's Martin Campbell.
The casting, of course, puts a question mark on Reynolds’ picking up the role of Deadpool for the previously announce spinoff of Wolverine: Origins.
The role is Reynolds' third film role adapting a comic book character, as he previously played Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity as well as the aforementioned Deadpool. Of course, by playing Hal Jordan, Reynolds keeps comic roles in the family while setting up a home-based Marvel vs. DC rivalry, as his wife, Scarlett Johansson appeared in Will Esiner's The Spirit as Silken Floss, and will appear in Iron Man 2 as the Black Widow.
