Warner Bros. is scheduled to begin filming The Green Lantern in mid-September in Australia, reports Production Weekly.
To be directed by Martin Campbell, the comic book adaptation is targeted for a December 17, 2010 release.
The “Green Lantern” was created in 1940 by writer Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell. Hal Jordan introduced in 1959, a second-generation test pilot, is an ordinary man who was given the power ring and battery (lantern) by a dying alien named Abin Sur. When Abin Sur’s spaceship crashed on Earth, the alien used his ring to seek out an individual to take his place as Green Lantern: someone who was “utterly honest and born without fear.”
