It appears that Warner Bros. is finally making some moves to get DC Comics-based movies in the pipeline.  Variety is reporting that Martin Campbell, who oversaw Daniel Craig’s revival of the Bond franchise in Casino Royale and helmed two contemporary Zorro films, is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to direct a Green Lantern movie. According to Variety, the “emergence of Campbell puts Green Lantern at the top of the DC properties being set up for movie treatment by WB.”


But however fast the track that the Green Lantern movie is on, it will have a hard time beating the Jonah Hex movie to the cineplexes.  Variety  also reports that Josh Brolin is set to play the disfigured gunslinger with Jimmy Hayward directing (see “Jonah Hex Gets New Director”)—and filming on Jonah Hex is set to begin this April.
