Duncan Jones has some thoughts on a new Green Lantern movie

01.17.2017

Last week we got news that the GREEN LANTERN CORPS movie took a big step forward by hiring David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to pen the script. Now the speculation train is chugging as to who will be starring as Hal Jordan and John Stewart, and which lucky director will get to bring the green heroes to life. Though we don't have any answers to those questions, we can say who is not directing the movie: Duncan Jones. The SOURCE CODE and WARCRAFT helmer recently took to Twitter to share his thoughts on a potential GREEN LANTERN movie, and they are quite…thoughtful.

Okay that's actually pretty funny. Of course this was all in jest, and Jones makes that perfectly clear by affirming he will not be tackling any sort of GREEN LANTERN movie.

This came on the heels of the aforementioned news that Goyer and Rhodes will pen the script which is being described as “Lethal Weapon in space", while THE PEOPLE VS. O.J. SIMPSON star Sterling K. Brown also voiced his desire to play John Stewart in the movie. See, not everyone hates Green Lantern!

I’m sure there are plenty of comic book fans who want a great GREEN LANTERN movie, but so far not everyone sounds excited about the flick. Jones’s idea is actually pretty funny as some sort of satirical concept, so hopefully Lantern fans don’t rip him apart too bad. Who knows, maybe his idea could actually be better than what DC finishes with. What a world!

The GREEN LANTERN CORPS movie is aiming for a 2020 release.

"Green Lantern should be about a simple-minded jock who has to come up with imaginative, new ideas every time he uses the ring."

Well, that's basically just Guy Gardner.

Who cares who directs? Goyer is a hack, the movie is already doomed. I don't know how he keeps getting work after everything he touches turns to shit.

Goyer is the very definition of a hack. Some people toss that term out incredibly loosely, but this is a guy whom it fits to a "T." He's worked on some good projects when he had strong co-writers but Rhodes doesn't appear to be one of those. I will honestly go see a Green Lantern movie, no matter how bad it is, and of course I'm hopingit's good, but between Goyer, Rhodes and DC's current track record I am not holding my breath.

Its a pretty spot on description of Jordan. The polar opposite of Rayner, who had the imagination but lacked the will power.

That's too bad considering he would do a great job with it. Since they're looking for a 'Lethal Weapon' vibe, perhaps get Shane Black to direct and/or write??

I feel like the criticism of IRON MAN 3 has turned Shane Black off of doing superhero movies for the time being. But who knows? Maybe a GREEN LANTERN movie in the vein of LETHAL WEAPON could be the idea that gets him back in the game.

Btw, how excited are you to see Green Lantern finally getting some attention in the DCEU. About time, right? (Also, don't take that as sarcasm, it's a genuine thought).
