LOL, I agree. I tossed my old vhs Batman movies, and as far as I'm concerened, the two current Batman movies are all that count. They are so good they make the old stuff look god awful.

I want to see a guy that not only physically resembles Hal Jordan (I still have nightmares about Keanu Reeves playing John Constantine!), but has the swagger, and pulls off the cocky pilot aspect.

Agreed. It can be done, I still think Chris Pine has the look and spirit to do it correctly. Does anyone have any other ideas. I heard Nathan Fillion which could work also, but I heard they were looking for actors under the age of 30 . .

Default Wow ya'll have to read this

This is an article that was released on this morning about the Green Lantern movie getting a go. Check out what this author said about the it:

" It’s officially time to scrape the bottom of the comic-book barrel. WB has announced that The Green Lantern will shoot in Australia with Casino Royale director Martin Campbell and a $150 million budget. Besides a favorable exchange rate, the government of New South Wales also provides a 15% “location rebate.” The lead hasn’t been named yet, but rumors thus far have included Emile Hirsch, Anton Yelchin , Sam Worthington, and Ryan Gosling .

To put the budget in perspective (and these are all estimated numbers…), Fantastic Four was $100M, Iron Man was $140M, Watchmen was $150M, The Dark Knight was $185M, X-Men: The Last Stand was $210M and Spider-Man 3 topped $258M. [ /Film ]

Keep in mind, The Green Lantern gets his superpowers from a magic ring. No, really. An alien named Abin-Sur crash lands on Earth, meets a young man, and likes him so much he puts a ring on him. And the ring inspires the him to put on a full-body spandex suit and knee-high green F-me boots. What that has to do with lanterns, I have no idea. Maybe when he’s not fighting crime, he’s really into shabby chic."

Just goes to show you that you really should check you facts before you post anything . . .

3rd time this news has been posted.

And that's not a quote from Slashfilm. This is what they said:

Quote:
Warner Bros has decided to shoot The Green Lantern at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney. THR is reporting that the film’s budget is around $150 million. To put that in perspective (and these are all estimated numbers…), Fantastic Four was $100M, Iron Man was $140M, Watchmen was $150M, The Dark Knight was $185M, X-Men: The Last Stand was $210M and Spider-Man 3 topped $258M.

But why Australia? The reported $150 million budget is worth a lot more in Sydney. The production was attracted by the decline in value of the Australian dollar, a 15% location rebate from the Australian federal government, on top of the incentives supplied by the New South Wales government.

The film is planning to begin in July with actual filming scheduled to start in November. The film is currently set to hit theaters on December 17th 2010.
That's it. I don't know where you got the article from but /film has had that same brief article up since yesterday when I posted the news here.

I guess I don't understand why someone would report on something that they not only hate, but also don't have all the fact . . . its different if you have a the facts and still disagree with it . . . imo.

Well he didn't state a false fact. And it is a movie blog, so news is news. He knows the origin, he just decided to go the route of making fun of it rather than embrace it.

I guess I just consider his ring magically, I consider it alien technology, and he didn't mention that the ring gets it power from the lanterns.

But yeah I see what you are saying.

As the Green Lantern movie gets closer this fall's filming date, the internet is rampant with rumors about who might be cast in the lead role of Hal Jordan.

Screenwriter Marc Guggenheim, who penned the Green Lantern script with co-writers Greg Berlanti and Michael Green, told Newsarama that while he can't comment on casting, he personally is hoping to see someone young enough to carry the role into future films.

"I would like to see someone who is, while not being baby-faced by any stretch of the imagination, I would personally like someone who's young enough to carry a franchise going forward," Guggenheim said.

Green said the hopes are to build a Green Lantern film franchise that can be carried into future films. "You always write a script with success in mind. And in film, success means future films," he said.

The Green Lantern movie, which is being directed by Casino Royale's Martin Campbell, will begin filming in Australia in September for a release date of June 17, 2011. The reported budget for the movie is $150 million. (Although the original targeted date was Dec. 17, 2010, Warner Bros. just last week pushed back Green Lantern's release to 2011, where it's now set to compete with the currently scheduled May 6, 2011, release of Spider-Man 4.)

While no actor has been confirmed in the role of Hal Jordan, everyone from Star Trek's Chris Pine to The Notebook's Ryan Gosling have been rumored as being up for the role. And just last week, HitFix cited a source as confirming Bradley Cooper was "most likely" to be cast as Hal Jordan. Cooper, 34, is best known by TV audiences for his roles in Alias and Nip/Tuck, and he appears in this summer's upcoming comedy, The Hangover.

And just yesterday, Terminator Salvation actor Sam Worthington's name once again became attached to the movie after he confirmed to Moviehole that he has spoken to director Martin Campbell about the role.

"It's one of those things where they're still doing the script," said the 32-year-old actor. "I said, 'Give me a script. Let me have a look at it.' I like Martin a lot. I met him on the Bond stuff, and I like his work, but the second step is, 'Is it a movie that I'd go and see?"

That "still doing the script" line shouldn't worry fans too much. Green and Guggenheim told Newsarama that their script has been finished for some time, but it's being refined to make shooting more realistic and to line up with the locations being scouted in Australia.

"We're doing, basically, the production pass," Green said. "It's a really fun process because you're taking the things that were still abstract and making it practical and real. We're thinking about it in terms of, 'how will we actually affect this?' as opposed to making it something we were trying to convince the studio to do. It's a nice part of the process because it's no longer a sales document; it's a production script."

Guggenheim said the three writers are meeting with Campbell and producer Donald De Line regularly. "We're constantly working on the script and making revisions per our collective discussions and things that are reflected by the other departments in the movie," he said. "It's actually going to be filmed. So that's what's fun and challenging. So we're just working away on it."

Besides their work in TV and film, both Guggenheim and Green are also current comic book writers. Guggenheim works on Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics and Resurrection for Oni Press, while Green co-writes Superman/Batman for DC Comics. Green told Newsarama that because the writers are involved in comics, the script is a "fan's take. We're all huge fans of the character." And Guggenheim told Newsarama last year the script is "not only a respectful approach to the character, but it's a loving approach to the entire mythos."

That comic book connection gives Green Lantern fans hope for a movie that highlights the space-traveling, multi-hero aspect of the character. In comic books, Hal Jordan is not the only Green Lantern, but is part of an interstellar corps of heroes from throughout the universe who enforce justice with their green energy-emitting rings.

The movie seems to be following that universe-wide idea of the Green Lantern mythos, as the writers have confirmed the Green Lantern home planet of Oa is being designed for the film. And as Guggenheim and Green spoke with Newsarama about finding someone young enough to play Hal Jordan in multiple films, the Green Lantern character names Sinestro and Killowog also came up.

"The one thing I fear," Guggenheim said, "is that you don't want to end up – and no offense to Roger Moore – but you don't want to end up in the second movie with, like, Roger Moore in A View to a Kill. Where it's like, oh my God, don't strain yourself."

"So you're not liking my Peter O'Toole idea?" Green joked.

"Not liking your Peter O'Toole idea," Guggenheim said with a laugh. "But then, I tell ya, Peter O'Toole as Sinestro? Hmmm..."

"I have an old joke where anytime anyone asks me who I see in any character, I just say Seth Green," Green said. "And I don't think he's a good Hal Jordan. I don't really want him for this movie. But I'm going to stick with that because it always works for me. Then again, Seth Green Kilowog? What do you think?"

The whole time I was watching Star Trek I could only think about Kirk (Pine) as Hal. Now I almost prefer it.
