Production Update: Green Lantern

Published on March 9th, 2009 recently interviewed producer Donald De Line about the Green Lantern Movie, set for a December 17, 2010 release.

“Our story is the Hal Jordan origin story, but creating the character of Hal Jordan that is a real character that will resonate with the fan base is what we need to do. You have to make him credible and somebody to care about and tell a good story, and I think if we do that, we’ll be okay.”

“It’s going to be a series of big stakes and big action, but it absolutely has a sense of humor… I think people accept real life, even with really serious situations, with humor as part of that situation, as we experience in life, you have to have that. That’s how people cope, so they’ve done it so well in these other movies. I think that people are absolutely ready. It doesn’t have to fall on one side of the fence vs. the other.”

And about the rumors that they maybe casting young? “Not really, late ’20s, early ’30s.”
