Green Lantern gets different director… maybe?

green-lanternLate last evening, Variety noted that Warner Bros. is negotiating with Martin Campbell to direct their movie about DC Comics superhero Green Lantern. If this deal does go through, I think I may be interested in the idea of a Green Lantern movie for the first time DC said they’d be doing more superhero movies.

It’s not to say that Greg Berlanti who was the previously announced director couldn’t have done a decent job but as a mostly TV man, he’d have an interesting time doing the transition to movies. But Campbell has solid screen credits and experience in directing the first installment in genre movies, having directed directed Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig’s first Bond films (Goldeneye and Casino Royale, respectively) as well as the first in the recent Zorro trilogy movies, The Mask of Zorro.

Still, they’re “in negotiations” and we all know how that can go.

    I hope he gets the job. Goldeneye was the best Brosnan-era Bond movie, Mask of Zorro was the ONLY decent movie in the new trilogy, and I personally thought Casino Royale was the best Bond movie yet. So I’d be more than happy with Campbell.

    Hell, I’d just be happy if they actually MADE the damn movie, competent director or not.

    Yeah, I think I would like that choice as well. He is good with action.

    OK, I was bemused, now confused. Zorro “trilogy” – I know “The Mask of…” and “The Legend of…” what’s the third? Thanks for enlightenment.
