After months of speculation fans now know who will play 'Green Lantern' on the big screen. Ryan Reynolds has willed himself the lead role in Warner Bros. adaptation of the DC Comics title according to a breaking story on Variety.
The news caps a big summer for the comedic actor, who was the most buzz-about player in the 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' movie, which lead to him claiming his own spin-off as 'Deadpool'. He also topped the box office in the summer romcom 'The Proposal'.
Variety reports that the studio is still working on the budget for the move. As reported earlier today the current estimated budget is over $150 million for the super hero space opera.
Reportedly Reynolds was the choice for Warner Bros and director Martin Campbell.
Production is expected to begin in January.
What do you think Maniacs? Is Reynolds right for Hal Jordan? And now the question becomes: who should play Sinestro in the film?
