Warner Bros. has tapped David S. Goyer and Justin Rhodes to write the script for DC Films' upcoming "Green Lantern Corps" movie.
Goyer, who co-wrote one of Warner Bros' biggest superhero franchises in Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy, will also produce the film, with Geoff Johns and Jon Berg exec producing, according to Deadline.
The plan is for the new Corps to focus on Hal Jordan, portrayed by Ryan Reynolds in the character's first big screen adventure, and John Stewart. While it's unlikely that Reynolds will return for the new movie, Deadline states it is currently "unclear whether the studio would reengage" with the star. No mention was made of fellow Green Lanterns Guy Gardner or Kyle Rayner; Rayner's name has been discussed for the film in the past.
While news has been light surrounding the movie, fans have been eager to learn more about the GLC's return to theaters. In 2016, rumors regarding the re-casting of Hal Jordan surfaced, stating that Warner Bros. was looking for an actor around Matt Damon’s age for the character, alongside John and Kyle, who would be played by younger actors.
The studio has not yet announced a firm release date for "Green Lantern Corps," though it did come with a vague 2020 date when it was announced in October 2014 as the final movie on the ambitious DC Films slate. In early 2016, an untitled DC Comics superhero film suspected to be GLC was bumped from June 19, 2020 to July 24, 2020.
