We’re now about three and a half years away from the release of DC Films’ Green Lantern Corps. We’ve heard plenty of rumors surrounding this project, as well as Green Lantern’s role in the Justice League movies. Now, the film is taking shape with the addition of two screenwriters – one of whom is very familiar to the DC Extended Universe.
According to Deadline, David S. Goyer and Justin Rhodes will write the script for Green Lantern Corps. DC Films’ Geoff Johns and Jon Berg are executive producing, with Goyer serving as a producer. Johns and Goyer conceived the storyline.
Goyer, of course, is no stranger to the DC Universe. He co-wrote Batman Begins with Christopher Nolan, and he has story credit on the other installments of The Dark Knight Trilogy. He also wrote the script for Man of Steel and the original draft for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And finally, on the television side of things, Goyer is a co-creator of NBC’s Constantine and SyFy’s Krypton. Rhodes, meanwhile, has written a draft for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming Fantastic Voyage remake.
Deadline’s report confirms that Green Lantern Corps will star Hal Jordan and John Stewart, describing it as “Lethal Weapon in space.” The film is said to be based on a comic book origin story, and it will heavily focus on Stewart’s relationship with Jordan and the rest of the Corps.
Now that a script for Green Lantern Corps is in the works, the next step is to hire a director, and then will fill out its cast. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
Green Lantern Corps is scheduled to hit theaters on July 24th, 2020.
