Green Lantern 2 Already In The Works?
Warner Bros. Pictures must never have heard of the expression ‘hedging your bets’. A year before Green Lantern has even been released, they are already planning a sequel. Michael Goldenberg (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) has been hired to write the screenplay for Green Lantern 2.
Goldenberg (who was also responsible for Peter Pan) penned the screenplay for the first Green Lantern with Greg Berlanti (who is now involved with The Flash), Michael Green (Smallville, Heroes) and Marc Guggenheim (Flashforward).
Filming has only just wrapped on Green Lantern, which is directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Goldeneye) and stars Ryan Reynolds (Van Wilder: Party Liason, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) and Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Kick-Ass). Green Lantern is scheduled for release (in 2D and 3D) on June 17, 2011.
