Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern movie could begin shooting as soon as spring.
So says producer Donald De Line, who tells First Showing that a new draft of the script has been submitted, and the studio is “gearing up to start shooting early spring.”
While it’s not confirmed, he added that “it’s coming together and I’m excited about it. Hopefully we’ll make it to start gate. We’re really close – really close.”
The movie, directed by Greg Berlanti and written by Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green, will detail the origin of Hal Jordan, “with all the heroics and action inherent with that character.”
According to a script review — spoilers! — posted earlier this month at Latino Review, “The structure adheres closely to what I call — the ‘superhero origin movie paradigm.’ Our hero, in this case Hal Jordan has a fear, limitation, block, or wound at the beginning of the story which he has to overcome (his character arc) or have some control by the midpoint of the script which is usually the time he becomes the superhero for the first time ie: Batman Begins.”
