A Green Light For Green Lantern

There wasn't any doubt that Warner Bros.' Green Lantern would be going forward, but the film now has an official greenlight, says visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas. "Green Lantern got the official green light today," Goulekas announced on her blog. "And not a second too soon – only 10 weeks out from shooting!" While plenty of work has been done on the film, the green light allows money to really flow out to the production, so Goulekas and her crew now have two and a half months to get things together for a film that may include up to 1300 effects shots.

Martin Campbell will direct Green Lantern, which stars Ryan Reynolds and is scheduled for release on June 17, 2011.
