Venkman here and it looks like IEESB.net got there hands on the new Green lantern Script and put up a little non-script review of it. It looks like the movie has the potential to be pretty cool, it all depends on how they execute the making of the film. The script was written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. So if you want to know here are a few details that they talk about:
The script, if greenlit, is a sure-fire hit for fan boys, but in scale it's big, VERY big, and we are hearing rumors that it may be too big for the director currently attached, Greg Berlanti.
It starts off with the revelation of Oa and The Central Battery with a voice over narration explaining that 1) there are extraterrestrials that protect the universe, 2) they have power rings, 3) there are thousands of Green Lanterns and 4) one of us has become one of them.
Parts are straight out of the Emerald Dawn series including Jordan's simulator being ripped out of the training center and flown to a dying Abin Sur and Hal Jordan going to Oa to help defeat Legion.
We go from one part of the universe to another and find ourselves in a familiar Solar System...our own.
A few cameos include a certain mild mannered reporter from the Daily Planet, a certain college football coach with the last name of Gardner (who we are promised in the script we will see more of in the second film) and loads of other characters sure to keep fanboys orgasmic throughout.
Back to the script - The story follows the traditional Hal Jordan/Green Lantern story lines to a certain degree including the battle between Legion and Abin Sur, Abin Sur's crash landing on Earth, as well as the choosing of Hal Jordan over Guy Gardner and Clark Kent.
Thats all I'm going to post from the review if you would like to read the rest of it please click RIGHT HERE.
I am actually kind of excited for this Green Lantern flick. I just hope Warner bro's and DC give it the production value it needs to make it amazing. The script has not been greenlit yet, but from what it sounds like, it should be.
I wonder who they would get to Play Green Lantern. Any suggestions?
