    Ryan Reynolds is the "Green Lantern"

    http://weblogs.variety.com/bfdealmem....html?nid=2854

    Ryan Reynolds has landed the coveted role of “Green Lantern,” getting the starring role in Warner Bros.' live-action film based on the DC Comics hero.

    Martin Campbell will direct. The studio is still working on the picture’s budget, but production is expected to begin in January.

    The news caps off a memorable summer for Reynolds, who played Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” a performance that prompted Fox to begin development on a spinoff film. Reynolds followed that by starring opposite Sandra Bullock in the romantic comedy “The Proposal,” which crossed the $100 million mark this week.

    Warners and Campbell chose Reynolds, who vied for the superhero role along with “The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto. The momentum built for Reynolds in the last week, as he was the only actor whose option was extended.

    Greg Berlanti wrote the script with Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. Donald DeLine will produce with Berlanti. Reynolds’ reps at UTA are working out his deal.

    The actor will next star in “Buried,” a dark indie drama that will begin filming shortly in Barcelona with Spanish director Rodrigo Cortes. Reynolds will play a civilian contractor who is kidnapped in Iraq and awakes in a coffin, struggling against time to coordinate a rescue even though he doesn’t know where he’s buried in the desert.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    I didn't see this one coming. I believe he's signed on to play Deadpool also.

    Interesting. Just last night I saw a crawl that said Justin Timberlake was in the mix, which seemed strange.

    The rest is drama.

    My girlfriend just read the script for "Buried". He is the only character in the whole movie and he is in a coffin the whole time.

    No Seth is signed to be someone else. I can't think of who it is right now.

    Edit: He'll play the Green Hornet. I knew it was one of those green guys

    The current Green Lantern is vulnerable to the color yellow.

    The Golden Age Green Lantern was vulnerable to wood.
