Green Lantern movie signs director
Warner Bros. inked a deal with Greg Berlanti to direct its live-action Green Lantern movie, based of course on the DC Comics character. Known primarily for his writing and executive producing TV credits (e.g. Everwood, Dawson’s Creek, Jack & Bobby, Brothers & Sisters), Berlanti will pen the script for the movie with Brothers & Sisters writer/producer, Marc Guggenheim and Heroes co-executive producer Michael Green.
Guggenheim and Green are no strangers to comic books or fans, with Guggenheim having written for Marvel comic books such as Amazing Spider-Man and Wolverine among others, and the latter for DC Comics including Superman/Batman, and was also a writer/producer on Smallville. Donald de Line is set to produce the picture, with Andrew Haas serving as executive producer.
