David S. Goyer has confirmed the long-in-development Green Lantern film, Green Lantern Corps is still, in fact, in development, despite the recent behind the scenes shake-up at Warner Bros. and DC Films.
About a year ago, it was announced that Goyer had been tapped to write the screenplay for the Green Lantern film, along with Justin Rhodes (Contract Killers). It was also revealed that Goyer was attached to produce the project along with Jon Berg who stepped down from his position running the comic book’s film production division to the role of production partner last month in favor of Walter Hamada, who was named president of DC-based film production last week.
Although it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything substantial about Green Lantern Corps — which is rumored to be a buddy-cop movie with an older, experienced Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern training the young recruit John Stewart in the ways of the Corps — Goyer was asked at TCA 2018 about the project by IGN in which he revealed the film is “still in the works.” When asked when an update on the production might be revealed, Goyer said:
“I don’t know. Who knows, especially with what’s currently going on with the DC universe? There’s obviously a whole recalibration happening with that right now.”
Green Lantern Corps will be written by Goyer and Rhodes along with DC creative chief officer Geoff Johns who is serving as executive producer on the project.
