Following a report that Zack Stentz ("Power Rangers," "X-Men: First Class") is writing a "Booster Gold" film, Greg Berlanti, who was rumored to be executive producing the film, has confirmed the projects is in the works.
Earlier this week, The Hollywood Reporter, Berlanti confirmed that the film is being scripted by Stentz, and that he is interested in being more involved than simply producing it.
"I'm attached to a few films [at Warner Bros.] now, and one, 'Booster Gold,' is a DC property," Berlanti says. "Zack Stentz, who wrote an episode of Flash last year, just got the job, so he's writing the script now. I'd probably direct that, or I would want to."
Berlanti was previously involved with the character when he was producing a pilot script for a potential "Booster Gold" television series. Lately, he's been tied up producing "Arrow," "The Flash," "Legends of Tomorrow," "Supergirl" and the upcoming live-action Archie adaptation "Riverdale," among other projects.
Earlier in the year, DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns teased the return of Booster Gold, though he was careful not to indicate whether it would be live action or in the comics. "You'll see [Booster Gold] very soon, and there's talks about...there's actually a lot of plans for Booster Gold, one of my favorite characters. But yeah, Booster Gold fans, you will definitely be happy with what we've got coming up in the years ahead."
Created by Dan Jurgens for his self-titled series, Booster Gold went on to gain widespread recognition as a member of the "Justice League" and "Justice League International," before going on to appear in Jurgens' "Death of Superman" storyline. While he doesn't currently star in a series, the character headlined his own book from 2007-2011, prior to the New 52 reboot. Booster has made one previous live-action appearance, portrayed by actor Eric Martsolf on "Smallville."
