Green Lantern is officially rejoining the DC movie universe, with a Green Lantern Corps movie described as “Lethal Weapon in space.”
Deadline reports the Green Lantern reboot will feature the most well-known Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, alongside former U.S. Marine sniper John Stewart, another member of the intergalactic crime-fighting unit known as the Green Lantern Corps.
David Goyer is on board to co-write the film with lesser-known screenwriter Justin Rhodes, making this Goyer’s eighth DC adaptation credit, after the Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel, and Batman v Superman. The studio is still a long way away from casting the leads, but actor Sterling K. Brown has already thrown his hat into the ring to play John Stewart.
