Green Lantern Flick in the Works

Green LanternMichael Green, who previously wrote for Smallville and Heroes, is currently working on a script for a new Green Lantern flick.

"I'm co-writing it with Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, the best people you could hope to get stuck in a room with for any length of time," [Michael] Green said. "As for status, we're writing it now and having way too much fun doing it."

Superhero flix reports that the movie will be about Hal Jordan and not Kyle Rayner or John Stewart. There is also an assumption that this script is for a live action film and not an OVA. I can see a cool trilogy:

  1. Hal Jordan the Hero: Green Lantern saves the day

  2. Hal Jordan as Parallax: Hal possessed by the parasitic Parallax threatens the galaxy.

  3. Hal Jordan as the Spectre: Hal seeks redemption.

I think this could be a compelling series, but I am not holding my breath to see it.


My name is C.E. Dorsett, and I am a scifi/fantasy writer. I have written the books Shine Like Thunder and The Chain, just to name a couple.  I am really a builder of worlds from the wuxia inspired, scifi setting Our Solemn Hour to the dark fantasy of Dragons of Night.  My writing is influenced by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Charlaine Harris, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Frank Herbert, E E Doc Smith and Robert E Howard. I love to tell stories and talk with my readers.
