Green Lantern Corps movie

If you’re going to make a new Green Lantern movie, you might as well get the guy responsible for the definitive comic book run of the character to steer the ship.

Earlier today, it was announced that Geoff Johns was stepping down from his position as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment. But the popular and influential comic writer wasn’t being cast out into the void. Rather, he’s founded his own production company, Mad Ghost Productions, which will develop the long-gestating (it was announced in 2015) Green Lantern Corps movie via an exclusive partnership with Warner Bros.

Ocean’s 8 Inspirations

Every movie seeks inspiration from films made before. Whether the homage is intentional or not, Hollywood is a land known for cannibalizing itself. Ocean’s 8 builds off several pre-existing properties, and we’re not talking about the film’s obvious inspirations, like the Steven Soderbergh trilogy starting in 2001 with Ocean’s Eleven, nor are we discussing the 1960 Frank Sinatra incarnation of the film of the same name.

What Ocean’s 8 does with its story of eight women and the jewel heist they pull off is draw from the crime capers of the pre-Code, studio era, most notably the 1932 features Trouble in Paradise and Jewel Robbery, where each emphasizes a world where women are in control and crime can be a fun adventure all its own.
