The new Green Lantern movie has been green lighted and scheduled for a release on December 17th, 2010. The story will follow bold and fearless test pilot Hal Jordan as he is chosen by a dying alien to be his successor in an intergalactic peace keeping force known as the Green Lantern Corps. Jordan is given a ring that can make his every thought come to life in order to help him defend the galaxy. Martin Campbell, director of James Bond movies Goldeneye and the more recent Casino Royale, is in negotiations to direct the sci-fi fantasy. Let's hope it's half as good as The Dark Knight!
