executive producer (and
alum) Greg Berlanti has inked a deal to cowrite and direct a live-action big-screen adaptation of the DC Comics superhero Green Lantern. "To me, this was the last great comic-book movie that hasn't been made," Berlanti tells Reuters. "It [has] a real mythology that you would see in a lot of space operas and sci-fi books." Berlanti's version for Warner Bros. will focus on the Green Lantern embodied by Hal Jordon, a test pilot who uncovers a downed alien spacecraft and in turn a ring that recruits him onto an interstellar police force.
