Super Max rewritten

Green Arrow: Quiver - book cover

Good news for DC fans who are hoping for a quality film on Green Arrow: According to David Goyer, the uber-cool sounding SUPER MAX is still alive and moving forward. Although it ain't moving VERY fast...

Talking to MTV recently, Goyer who's attached as producer confirmed the project is still among Warner's good intentions and somewhat being updated. "We're working on that. We're about to bring on another writer," says the man. "Obviously, Warner Bros. is now heavily into mining all of the various DC properties." Obviously ($$$).

The film, initially scripted by Justin Marks, centers on Green Arrow, AKA Oliver Queen, being framed and sent to a maximum security prison for super villains where he'll need to forge unlikely alliances to escape and clear his name. So who's the new writer? And when can we expect to finally see that darn thing???

Extra Tidbit: I vote Kevin Smith to write and Ewan McGregor as Ollie Queen!

This is a completely stupid idea. If they want to make a Green Arrow movie they should make a Green Arrow movie. If they want to make a prison movie they should pull Green Arrow out of it and the whole DC universe for that matter.

I've always loved the concept of this movie and I'm glad to hear it's still in the works; I thought it was dead. While I don't hate the Ewan McGregor suggestion, I've grown quite attached to a recent one I heard. Sean Bean.

Thank God!

I read Justin Marks' original screenplay for this dated 3/5/08 and it wasn't very good. The basic concept was alright enough, but the characterization for Green Arrow (who they call Ollie or Oliver Queen for the most part, he barely even dons the Arrow attire) was terrible. He barely said anything that wasn't a one liner and anything interesting with his character was revealed in cliche cheesy ass flashbacks.

Hopefully they get a decent writer on here. Keep the basic concept but ditch

Hopefully they get a decent writer on here. Keep the basic concept but ditch almost everything else.

I say Kiefer Sutherland as GA... he's all grown up in the comics (with an adult son no less)... and Jason Statham as Deathstroke (if he is even in the movie that is).

McGregor I could stand as Ollie, as long as we get someone like Gerard Butler to play Deathstroke..

GREAT IDEA

This movie sounds like a great take on the superhero genre. And Kevin Smith with Ewan McGregor is a great call. People will see he has range when a Couple of Dicks comes out.

You see...

... this is why I dig this site. Had NO IDEA that there was going to be a Green Arrow movie. I would never equate the title to the "Arrow" ! Its on my radar now, dammit !! What would REALLY be cool is if they can get a live-action Justice League movie going! Hell, I'd settle for a Batman-Superman hook-up.

Smith's comic writing was alright from what I recall, not that he ever got anything in on time.

Mc Gregor is a good pick! But Kevin Smith? This would turn out to be: Jay and Silent Bob: Prison Break or Mallrats: Super F***in Max. No, thanks.
