Marc Guggenheim Offers An Update On 'Green Lantern' Film

'Green Lantern'Last month, we posted some fanboy-friendly information about the script for the "Green Lantern" film, written by Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green and Greg Berlanti, who is also directing the film. COMICON recently spoke with Guggenheim about how the film is progressing, and received an update of sorts on the ring-bearing hero's big-screen debut.

"I will tell you it features Hal Jordan and is an incredibly faithful rendition of the character," said Guggenheim, who played it very, very safe with his status report, remarking that he had "sworn a blood oath of secrecy" regarding the film.

As for the timeline on the script, Guggenheim told COMICON that the trio charged with bringing Hal Jordan and his willpower-fueled ring to theaters is currently "doing a rewrite for the studio with Greg [Berlanti] and Michael [Green]."

"We'll turn that in next week," said Guggenheim. "We just keep moving forward."

In related "Green Lantern" news, illustrator Brian Murray posted some of the concept art last week that he created for the film (and that subsequently earned it the the go-ahead for production), but it looks like the art was pulled from the 'Net. Fortunately, Cinematical has a gallery of the the emerald-hued designs still available.

What are your thoughts on the "Green Lantern" film, Splash Page readers? Do you think it's possible to pull it off? And if so, who would you cast?
