Green Lantern officially has a green light

Superhero Hype passes along a blog post from visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas:

Wow! Been a long time since I posted! But today is a day worth posting about!

Green Lantern got the official green light today! And not a second too soon - only 10 weeks out from shooting!

While it's great news we are a go - now we have to actually get our prep done in 10 weeks!
DOH!

But we have an amazing crew - so we will make it happen!
When the Australian shoot was scrapped there was trepidation given WB's history of pulling the plug on DC films at the last minute, so this is welcome news indeed.

It was reported last month that five actresses are rumored to be in the final running to play Carol Ferris: Eva Green, Keri Russell, Blake Lively, Diane Kruger, and Jennifer Garner. We should learn who gets the role very soon, along with who's playing the villains and supporting parts.

Re: Green Lantern officially has a green light

Michelle Monaghan should play Carol Ferris.

I don't know why Eva Green would be considered at all. She shoudn't get any bonus points for working with Martin Campbell on the Bond film. She couldn't fake a convincing American accent if she tried.

Diane Kruger has the same problem. And are brunettes suddenly in such short supply that they need to throw blondes like Kruger and the too-young Blake Lively into the mix? (Full disclosure--I didn't complain when Kate Bosworth was cast as Lois Lane in Superman Returns. Sue me.)

Jennifer Garner is four years older than Ryan Reynolds; I'd prefer someone the same age or slightly younger. I like Keri Russell but I can't picture her as Carol Ferris at all.

I would've given Rose Byrne the thumbs up, but her name doesn't seem to be circulating any more (as far as Green Lantern is concerned, anyway).

And Bosworth didn't play Lois Lane as a blonde. Hair dye and wigs aren't in short supply in Hollywood.

Exactly. Hair color doesn't matter. Actors change their hair color for parts all the time . . . .

And given that Reynolds recently co-starred with Sandra Bullock, I'm don't think age is really an issue here.

Re: Green Lantern officially has a green light

Nor does it matter whether they decide to play Carol Ferris as a blonde. Makes not one bit of difference.

Having said that, I like Kruger best.

No kidding. I hope they make 17 sequels now.

And I won't. Am I not free to wish for what I would like to see in a Green Lantern movie as a longtime reader of comics?

Ryan Reynolds is the bigger problem for me, he's regularly out-acted by the furniture.

That helps explain Jessica Alba in Fantastic Four.
