It looks as if plans have been shelved for a Green Lantern movie starring actor/comedian Jack Black.
IESB.net has a clip from its interview with Black in which he claims fan backlash to reinvisioning Green Lantern as a bumbling idiot caused Warner Bros. and DC Comics to pull the plug on the project.
“Somebody wrote a script for me, but I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Black says in the video clip. “Too many people were mad at the idea of me being the Green Lantern. … You know how it goes with comic-book people.”
IESB reviewed the script — written by Robert Smigel — back in August.
