Thanks to a blog post by Karen Goulekas, the visual effect supervisor of the upcoming film Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds and directed by Martin Campbell, it is now official that the film was gotten a greenlight from Warner Brothers. Goulekas was quoted on her blog as saying in regards to the official go ahead:
And not a second too soon – only 10 weeks out from shooting!
I wasn’t aware they were so close to production on the film. It is nice to know that real money is going to start heading their way. I am fully behind a Campbell-directed comic book movie and Ryan Reynolds has already proven he has the chops to play a superhero. Green Lantern is scheduled to hit theaters June 17th, 2010.
Are you excited for Green Lantern?
