10 weeks is NOT a lot of time to get this movie going. Set designs, costumes, a LOT of stuff that needs to be don ebefore the cameras start rolling in 10 weeks. They need to get their asses in gear.

There should be a lot more news for us from this point on. We'll see how secretive they can be!

Costume is done, at least on a basic level. Set production has been going on for a bit already.

Ryan's already been in for costume fittings and seen costume prototypes, it's not like they've been sitting around with their thumbs up their asses :P

I'm pretty sure they were already rolling on preproduction, I think the "green light" means that WB put the final stamps of approval on the production to allow it to begin, things like budgets and script revisions.

As in, they're allowed to begin filming now.

Green Lantern: Help Wanted



If you know something about photo manipulation, maybe you can get a job on Martin Campbell's big screen version of Green Lantern.
Offers the New Orelans Photo Alliance over at www.neworelansphotoalliance.blogspot.com, "Here's a neat cinema project ... the Green Lantern's art department is looking to subcontract a photographer to do some photo manipulation projects. The film covers a range of time periods and has a database of images that need to be manipulated digitally or otherwise to have the look of age (i.e. a faded picture from the 70's, or a distressed black and white photo from the 40s). Filming begins in March and will run through August. If you're good with Photoshop graphic techniques, then contact Mamae Bolton with Big Moose Productions, 504-523-9393.



Now is your chance if you have the talent...too bad I don't!

I'm sure Pre-production has been going on for this movie for some time now. I think what we are seeing now is the production moving into over drive to hopefully bring us production stills and a possible teaser trailer in the fall of this year. Keep fingers crossed.

Director Martin Campbell Says GREEN LANTERN Isn't Just a Spandex Suit Movie


Quote:
Speaking at the press day for his latest film EDGE OF DARKNESS starring Mel Gibson, director Martin Campbell got a bit off topic and talked about his next project GREEN LANTERN starring Ryan Reynolds.

Campbell told the LA Times that it isn't just a spandex suit movie and compared it a bit to Flash Gordon,

"It's a departure for me, I've never done a super hero before," said Campbell.

"What I like about this hero and this story is it's all about will power, it's also about fear and about courage. It's not just a spandex suit movie. He doesn't just put on the suit and fly off and face evil kryptonite and all that."

"There is a Flash Gordon element to it, this is a superhero who goes to another planet and that's different than the rest, that opens up a lot of interesting options."

Sinestro Might Not Be So Bad After All

Source:Edward Douglas
January 16, 2010



While everyone is still buzzing from the excitement of Mark Strong possibly coming on board Martin Campbell's Green Lantern to play Sinestro as reported yesterday, we just spoke with Mr. Campbell about his new thriller Edge of Darkness starring Mel Gibson--a pleasant and informative interview you'll be able to read in full over on ComingSoon.net very soon—and we did get in a couple questions about GL.

We mainly talked with Campbell about his interest in the project and the basis of the story, which is essentially Hal Jordan's origin, but when we asked whether there might be any hints or set-up for a future Justice League film, he instead told us the following:

"I think it will stick closely to the origin story, but we all know Sinestro, for an example, is a character who goes over to the dark side, and of course, Carol, played by Blake Lively, in later versions becomes a bad guy as well. I think people will be able to see forward to the characters that in the comic went on to (become bad guys)… but people will be ahead of us on all that I think."

Of course, there's a chance we're reading too much into that, but it seems pretty clear the movie will be introducing Sinestro when he was still a member of the Green Lantern Corps and a mentor to Hal Jordan during his early days as Green Lantern, rather than just having him show up as the main villain. Those SHH readers only vaguely familiar with Green Lantern or Sinestro (or haven't been following the comics in the last four years) might not realize that very important aspect of the relationship between Hal and Sinestro, explored most recently in Geoff John's retelling of Hal's story in the "Secret Origin" series (collected into a hardcover we highly recommend that you can pick up from Amazon). From Campbell's statement, it's clearly something that will be explored in the movie as well.

Those who are only familiar with Strong's work in Sherlock Holmes might not realize how good he is at playing layered villains, something more evident from his roles in Ridley Scott's Body of Lies and Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla, so it should be interesting to see him playing a mentor to Ryan Reynolds, even if it's more of a military relationship, almost like an officer to a private.

We'll run the rest of what Campbell said about Green Lantern with our full interview for Edge of Darness, which opens on January 29.

Default Emerald Dawn Comic Confirmed to be the Basis for the Green Lantern Movie!

Emerald Dawn Comic Confirmed to be the Basis for the Green Lantern Movie!

Director Martin Campbell says the 80's miniseries, which showed a more flawed Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, looks to be the backdrop for one of 2011's biggest movies.

When the Green Lantern was first introduced, Hal Jordan was chosen because he was the most deserving man in the area. Emerald Dawn changed that. This mini-series that was released before the first issue of the Green Lantern series came out in 1990. It is a retelling and slight reworking of Hal Jordan's (the Silver Age Green Lantern) origin. The Hal in this book is definitely different from the Hal in the 1970s and 1980s. Readers had grown accustomed to him as a leader, one of the Guardians' finest. Emerald Dawn showed him as a fallible human (he hurts a few of his friends while driving drunk) and he is a little impulsive with his actions when he first gets his ring. But, by the end of the story, he has saved Oa from the threat of Legion, proving that he is a hero and Green Lantern material.






Martin Campbell spoke with Devin Faraci from CHUD.com and said that what people will like best about Hal Jordan is that he is "the hotshot military guy who is slightly f***ed up. He screws up a bit. He may be a hotshot as a pilot, but he also has chinks in his armor, which is what makes him interesting. In fact if anybody should not be chosen as Green Lantern, it would have been Hal Jordan. That's the journey that film takes, about somebody who on the surface of it is the least likely candidate to become one of the greatest Green Lanterns."



According to Mr. Faraci Campbell, specifically called Emerald Dawn "the origin," which veers from the indifferent and strait laced Lantern who first splashed across DC Comics.



DogsOfWar-This news certainly brings Ryan Reynolds persona closer to the Green Lantern's character. I just hope they don't make him too much of a wise ass.

Makes sense. Person born without (or ability to overcome great) fear + access to the latest in military aircraft = hotshot daredevil pilot who many might think is borderline (or maybe very) reckless. After he gets the ring he realizes the power at his disposal and learns that he has to temper his recklessness with some common sense and foresight.

Could be a helluva movie. Also I can really see RR doing well with something like this.

I'm still a little unsure about Blake Lively's casting, mainly because I'm unfamiliar with her, but the rest of the casting seems pretty sound. Now all they need to do is announce who's playing other GLs like Kilowog, Abin Sur, and Tomar Re.

Is this news to anyone? We've known that for almost 3 years.

True. But it is nice to hear Campbell confirm it. Since he has been ordering re-writes for a bit now. Part of me wonders how much he's changed, but at the same time he seems like he's pretty damned familiar with the characters and the story.

Martin Campbell talks De-Cheesing, Trilogies, and being Realistic

Quote:
Director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) talked with us for the first time about his upcoming Green Lantern movie, a live-action adaptation of the DC Comics series, starring Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. Even with a mythology set on other planets and dealing with extraterrestrial forces, Campbell promises to keep the film believable.

Campbell also confirmed that the film would tell the origin story of Hal Jordan and the intended casting of Peter Sarsgaard as the film's villain. "I think he's contracted," Campbell said. "I'm not sure if negotiations have been complete, but he's absolutely who we want."

The director also hinted that he might have plans for an entire trilogy of Green Lantern films. "Oh, sure," he said. "Well, it's like Sam Raimi on Spider-Man, isn't it?"

The movie centers on Hal Jordan, a test pilot who becomes a guardian of Earth by wielding a ring that can create material manifestations of the wielder's choosing. That might seem as fanciful as you can get, but Campbell explained how he feels reality can exist within superhero stories.

"I think the thing to do is keep a sense of reality about it," Campbell said in an exclusive interview Saturday in Santa Monica, Calif., where he was promoting the thriller Edge of Darkness. "Any time we talk about it, we sit in meetings, we have a cheese meter. We talk about de-cheesing any scene. So it's quite funny. We've all sort of got a sort of cheese meter where that becomes our sort of yardstick in terms of keeping it, giving it some sense of reality."

Campbell added: "So often in these superhero movies, nobody seems to get hurt. I remember seeing Wolverine, and he picks people up and hurls them 100 yards into a brick wall. These people, apparently unhurt, sort of get up and continue to fight just as strongly as they did before. Well, there's something absurd about that, in my opinion."

Portraying the green manifestations of the ring would be a new step for visual effects, but it's all based on character. "Well, of course it's willpower drives the rings and forms the constructs via the ring," Campbell said. "I think he's the only superhero that does that."

Campbell was attached to a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds for the Platinum Dunes production company but said that he had to leave that project to do Green Lantern. "I passed on that to do Green Lantern," Campbell said. "It's still with Universal."

Green Lantern is due out in 2011.

Not sure what to make of his views of realism on comic book movies. I don't think he's referring to a realistic styling, but more how events take place especially in fighting? Would love to see a slugfest battle with Hal having scrape up energy for a knockout blow.

Also like how he referenced willpower, seems like he gets it more than the animated movie did.

I'm pretty excited about the fact that Campbell's looking at this in terms of a multi-picture deal. Hopefully we'll get a nice big story-arc out of this (Nolan/Raimi style, but more Nolan than Raimi)

That would be nice, considering elements were forced down his throat for Spider-man 3. And we all know how that turned out.

I think WB is smarter than that, and we'll get a more Nolan ride. Just hope Campbell stays interested enough for a trilogy. Do we know if his contract is for three movies?

No Superman in 'GREEN LANTERN'


Director Martin Campbell also gave MTV News a list of characters from Green Lantern's universe that would be appearing in the film.

And while we were on the subject, we had to ask about another high-profile DC character rumored to make a cameo.

"No, that won't happen," Campbell told MTV News when asked about the chances of Superman (or possibly Clark Kent) appearing in "Green Lantern" in some form.

Way back in December 2008, we brought you the first, exclusive report that a Superman cameo was being written into early drafts of the "Green Lantern" script, as revealed to MTV News by the film's co-screenwriter Marc Guggenheim. In a follow-up interview conducted in July 2009, Guggenheim said the script was still in flux, and he couldn't be sure if the Superman cameo would make the final cut.

Campbell's comments would now seem to indicate that a meeting between Hal Jordan and Clark Kent was no longer in the mix for "Green Lantern" — and the same goes for a meeting with Bruce Wayne or any other DC heroes, too.

"None of the other DC characters will appear in the film," said Campbell.

While that seems to rule out a "Hard-Traveling Heroes" team-up for Green Lantern and Green Arrow, anyone hoping for an appearance by Ch'p just might be in luck!

That's a bit disappointing, but with the state of the Superman films right now, it makes complete sense.
