Discusses some of the Green Lantern movie rumors that are roaming around.
irector Martin Campbell has been making headlines on an almost daily basis, and it's not for his new film Edge of Darkness, starring Mel Gibson. Campbell has been speaking quite a bit about one of fandom's most highly-anticipated comic book movies: Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds.
Rebecca Murray of About.com recently caught up with Campbell and asked him about some of the rumored characters and plot details that have been circulating about Green Lantern.
Many believe that there will be two (or more) villains facing off against Hal Jordan/Green Lantern--Hector Hammond and Sinestro--but Campbell said that's not true:
"No, no, no, no, no. Don't listen to that nonsense."
And, when pressed about the plot, Campbell referred back to an earlier statement that he made about the Green Lantern: Emerald Dawnmini-series:
"Well, I'll tell you what. Get the origin story, read that, and you'll be pretty much on target. Well, you know, it varies slightly. But [the movie is] pretty much the origin story of Green Lantern."
Besides Reynolds, the only other Green Lanterncast member confirmed at this time is Blake Livelyin the role of Carol Ferris, Hal's boss and love interest. Campbell has said that he is in negotiations with Mark Strong (Lord Blackwood inSherlock Holmes) for the role of Sinestro, andPeter Sarsgaard is supposedly in talks to play the villainous Dr. Hector Hammond.
