Blake Lively has landed the female lead next to Ryan Reynolds in the screen adaptation of The Green Lantern. She will star as Carol Ferris in the DC Comic adaptation. Variety had this to add about the production of the film:
Martin Campbell will direct. Production is expected to begin in March with a release date set for June 17, 2011.
Greg Berlanti wrote the script with Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. Michael Goldenberg's rewriting.
Donald DeLine's producing with Berlanti. DeLine VP Andrew Haas is exec producing.
"Green Lantern" was hatched in 1940. Hal Jordan, a second-generation test pilot, is an ordinary man who has been charged with defending a sector of the universe with a mystical green ring. His love interest Carol Ferris is a pilot and administrator in civilian life.
I'm a bit apprehensive about this choice... Not sure if Lively will be able to handle the female lead in such a large film; she seems pretty young as well. What do you think?
