Will 'Green Lantern' Be The Next DC Comics Film To Hit Theaters?

Green LanternIt's been a few weeks since we've checked in with the "Green Lantern" camp -- last we heard, co-screenwriter Marc Guggenheim said he was putting the final touches on the script and hinted that DC's resident "Big Blue Boy Scout" might be making a cameo in the film.

Fortunately, today the 'Net gives us a few updates from the "Green Lantern" front, and who better to hear from than Warner Bros. President, Alan Horn, who the fellas over at Collider.com recently had the opportunity to talk to on a red carpet event for "Yes Man."

"['Green Lantern' is] on the board," said Horn in the Collider piece. "On the runway. Hasn’t taken off yet, but we’re close. I think 'Green Lantern' is probably the best guess [as the next DC Comics film to hit theaters] but I can’t promise it at this moment."

And in other "Green Lantern" news, while Guggenheim and co-writers Michael Green and Greg Berlanti (who’s also on board to direct) are wrapping-up the fanboy-friendly script, it appears that Warner Bros. have begun scouting locations for the film in Australia (a country which has been pwning the comic book film blogs the week thanks to "The Phantom Legacy"). As The Sydney Morning Herald reports, filmmakers have been looking at locales around the country and have been conducting interviews with key crew in Sydney.

What do you think, "GL" fans -- happy to hear that the adaptation is moving right along? Let's hear what you have to say in the comments.
