Marvel Comics is not the only one with big movie news as DC Comics through Warner Brothers Pictures announced more news regarding the upcoming "Green Lantern" movie.
Marc Guggenheim, who I had the pleasure of meeting this weekend, is writing the Green Lantern Movie. He did a recent interview with Sci-Fi and had a lot to say. The movie, whose budget is a staggering $150 Million, still does not have a lead actor for the Hal Jordan version of the series.
Marc had this to say about the rumors that Bradley Cooper & Chris Pine are being considered for the role:
"I mean, they're all false insofar as we haven't chosen anyone yet. They're still in the negotiations, you know? There's a lot of names being talked about, and there's a lot of people being met, and a lot of ... actors reading the script."
Marc has done a lot in the industry so far, TV, movie and in comics as well and I am pulling for the "Eli Stone" writer. I am worried about the "150 Million" budget but have a feeling if anyone can make a profit from that, Marc and the boys can.-Dr.FB

According to Variety, Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is in talks with Warner Bros. to helm their production of The Green Lantern. Other films Campbell has directed include the two Zorro films (The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro) starring Antonio Banderas, and another James Bond flick Goldeneye. The script for Green Lantern was written by Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green, and Greg Berlanti, who was also originally considered to direct the film. Instead, Berlanti will share production credit with Donald DeLine.
