Green Lantern Sequel Being Worked On
A sequel to Green Lantern movie (which hasn’t even been released) is already being worked on. Warner Bros. anticipating a hit and following the success of Marvel’s movie schedule, set the sequel in motion.
The Hollywood Reporter got the exclusive scoop that:
The studio has hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, all of whom worked on the ‘Lantern’ screenplay, to write a treatment for the second installment. ‘Lantern’ is shooting in New Orleans under the direction of Martin Campbell with Ryan Reynolds starring as the emerald ring-wielding DC Comics superhero who is part of an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. Development on a second installment this far out from a movie’s release date is rare, signaling the studio’s confidence in what it sees so far. It also appears to be the first moves the studio is making under its newly configured relationship with DC.
Berlanti, Green, and Guggenheim have also been tapped to work on a treatment for the Flash, another DC property. Ryan Reynolds was also rumored to play the lead in the Flash before he was cast as Hal Jordan in Green Lantern.
