According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is working on a sequel to Green Lantern — even though the first one isn’t heading to the big screen until July 2011. Warner has hired the same team, Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, to write a treatment for the second film. (In addition, they’ll also start taking a crack at DC’s fastest hero’s film, The Flash.)
Scheduling a sequel without stats on first offering is a Hollywood rarity. But this certainly bodes well for Green Lantern. After all, Warner Bros. greenlit a sequel to The Hangover weeks before the blockbuster comedy was released in theaters. And I’d say that was a gamble that paid off.
Does this news make you more excited to see Green Lantern, PopWatchers?
