|YUP.. Ryan Reynolds is Green Lantern.|
Yup looks like once again things just dont work out the way you want it. seems if you wish hard enough and want something bad enough....it is destined to not happen..Oh whoa is me!! Yesterday it was reported that Justin Timberlake was in contention to play The Green Lantern. JT had shot a screen test for the film, as had the other three contenders Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, and Ryan Reynolds. But at the end of the day on Friday, Reynolds was chosen over the other finalists to play the role of Hal Jordan aka The Green Lantern.
The film’s budget isn’t finalized but Warner Bros is hoping to begin shooting in January, hoping to have the films in theaters for the previously announced June 17th 2011 release date. The last reports state Warners was planning to shoot the film at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney (to take advantage of tax rebates), with a budget of around $150 million.
Though not my first choice for the Lantern or second, Reynolds definitley looks the part. Hopefully this wont be another bad comic movie. Congrats to Reynolds and all who supported him.
