Below is an Q&A update to the ongoing development to Green Lantern with Frosty at Collider and pruducer Donald De Line.
Question: Is Green Lantern going to be a straight up conventional action comic book movie or is it more of a comedy?
Donald De Line: It is absolutely a big action/adventure piece and fantasy obviously as we go out into space with the Green Lantern. And it’s Hal Jordan. It will absolutely have a sense of humor as well, character based humor. So it’s not dark it that regard.
Is it more like an Iron Man?
Donald De Line: I would say the tone absolutely wants to live in that kind of a world.
A lot of fandom seems to be excited by comic book movies and they seem to be a huge part of the box office. Is this project definitely green lit and going?
Donald De Line: It is definitely going as much as anything is in the movie business right now. We’re in pre-production. We have Martin Campbell directing it. We have our production designer and costume designer. We’re heading off to Australia to scout next week. It’s on the release calendar. I feel like we’d have to do something really wrong to stop it from happening. But I think we’re absolutely going to keep it on the track.
Well it seems to me that the Marvel movies have done such a good job at introducing other characters into their movies like they did in Iron Man with Nick Fury. Are you guys already thinking about say introducing another DC character in Green Lantern?
Donald De Line: I haven’t gone there because I’m just doing Green Lantern, but DC Comic is a part of Warner Bros. and they both have a very large agenda with that. So I think they’ve got all kinds of things in the works. Yeah, definitely.
