'Green Lantern 2' and 'The Flash' Deals
According to The Hollywood Reporter Warner Brothers has hired Greg Berlanti (NO ORDINARY FAMILY), Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim to write screen treatments for GREEN LANTERN 2 and THE FLASH.
The first GREEN LANTERN is still shooting under directer Martin Campbell in New Orleans, but the studio is apparently excited enough to being developing a sequel.
The trio had written a screenplay for the film currently in production, but Campbell brought in Michael Goldenberg (HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX) to alter the script to his liking.
The article states Berlanti & Co. will write storylines for both films and that they’ll be commissioned to write a full screenplay for one or the other, depending on reactions.
THE FLASH film is one that writer/DC Entertainment executive Geoff Johns is very interested in, and the storyline will reportedly be inspired by his comic book work, featuring the silver age Barry Allen version of the character.
