Green Lantern To Be Played By Justin Timberlake?
It appeared in the Hollywood Reporter today that Warner Brothers is poised to select who will take the lead role in upcoming superhero movie The Green Lantern.
After five months of auditions the shortlist has been narrowed down to three: Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper and wildcard Justin Timberlake.
Some reports are putting Timberlake as the favourite to land the role as Hal Jordan, the Air Force pilot chosen by a dying alien to succeed him in an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lanterns.
After all, his work on The Guru was widely acclaimed.
The movie is scheduled for a December 2010 opening.
