A new big screen take on Green Lantern is still in the works from Warner Bros.
When Warner Bros swiftly went about putting together its DC series of movies, as it even concedes itself, it tried to do way too much, way too quickly. It’s telling that the biggest successes the studio has had have come when individual filmmakers were given a bit of time and room, as with Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, and Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.
Other films came and went with mixed reviews at best. Green Lantern fell flat, Aquaman made a fortune but again felt a little weak, and the Zack Snyder collection of films have fervent fans and, er, fervent non-fans. Suicide Squad, meanwhile, is effectively now being rebooted.
Warner Bros has responded to difficult times by slowing down its DC output, and retooling which films it was pursuing. But surprisingly, one survivor of this process has been the Green Lantern reboot, that’s going by the name of Green Lantern Corps.
A new report at Variety suggests it remains a priority project for h studio, with Geoff Johns tasked with the current draft of the script, which he is expected to deliver to studio brass by the end of the year. Separately, a Green Lantern television project is also underway.
The new film doesn’t yet have a director attached, and it may be a case of wait and see how the script turns out.
No timescales have thus far been announced, but it’s clear that the project is still on the stove. More as we hear it.
