The live-action flick has already got Greg Berlanti as its helmer with Donald De Line producing.
Good news for you, superhero fans, Warner Bros. Pictures is brewing another superhero flick and it will be "Green Lantern", the famous DC Comics character known to be the wielder of a power ring that gives him great control over the physical world.
Project is confirmed by Variety to be a live-action one and has already picked up Greg Berlanti to carry out the helming duties. Previously directed 2000's "The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy", the man is recognized more as a TV writer and executive producer for some series like "Everwood", "Eli Stone", and "Brothers & Sisters."
Not only directs, Berlanti is reported to also work on the script alongside writing duo Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. Serving as producer will be Donald De Line, who is currently handling Ridley Scott-directed "Body of Lies" for Warner Bros, with Andrew Haas to executive produce.
Green Lantern, created by writer Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell, first appeared in All-American Comics #16 in July 1940, featuring Alan Scott as the first titular superhero. However, the best-known one is considered to be the second Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, whom John Broome and Gil Kane created for Showcase #22, published in October 1959.
