This trailer was made by a fan editing various things together and adjusting various effects. Very nicely done.

Green Lantern Movie Writer Info

Writer reveals Green Lantern movie's progress and a few hints

Screenwriter Marc Guggenheim told SCI FI Wire exclusively that he has just completed a new draft of a proposed live-action Green Lantern movie, based on a script by him, Michael Green and Greg Berlanti.

"In fact, I'm ... delivering another draft today," Guggenheim (TV's Flash Forward) said in an exclusive interview on Friday. "So it continues to move forward."

The film is expected to be directed by Martin Campbell, who stepped in for Berlanti, and is slated to begin production at Australia's Fox Studios in Sydney this summer for a release on June 17, 2011.

Guggenheim confirmed that his script will focus on Hal Jordan, based on the Silver Age DC Comics incarnation of the superhero, and how he became a member of the Green Lantern Corps.

Beyond that, Guggenheim remained tight-lipped. "You know I really can't [say anything]," he said. "I've sworn a blood oath of secrecy in relation to the project. But, you know, the thing I can tell you is that it is a very loving and respectful approach."

Guggenheim added: "The goal here is to do the best cinematic representation of the Green Lantern character. You know, there's no desire on anyone's part to completely change the character and just call this other character Green Lantern and try to ... draft off the name recognition. This is all about 'How do we bring the best version of this character to the silver screen?'"

As for the movie's source material, Guggenheim said, "We've drawn heavily from ... a lot of different sources in terms of the comic books. ... The character ... is several decades old, so ... we've really had an incredible amount of source material to cherry-pick from."

As for casting of the iconic character, rumors have centered on such of-the-moment actors as The Hangover's Bradley Cooper and Star Trek's Chris Pine. None are true, Guggenheim said.

"They're all false," he said. "I mean, they're all false insofar as we haven't chosen anyone yet. They're still in the negotiations, you know? There's a lot of names being talked about, and there's a lot of people being met, and a lot of ... actors reading the script. But if you read online [that] Pauly Shore's been cast as Hal Jordan, I can guarantee you we have not cast anyone." That last rumor was a joke. We think.

As for the process, Guggenheim said, "It remains a lot of fun. It's such a great character, it's been a really great project so far."

Nice find on the article, and I had already seen the GL Fan Trailer.
Just my two cents, I don't think I would be all that happy with a Green Lantern movie if they centered the story around John Stewart or Kyle Rayner, both were decent GLs, but let's face it, Hal is the true Green Lantern. Now I don't like a lot of the stars rumored to be in the running for the role, such as Chris Pine or Bradley Cooper, and feel that a Green Lantern movie would be heavily hurt early on by casting these type of actors. Now I know that most of you now have seen that GL Fan Trailer depicting Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern, and quite honestly, I would have to agree. This isn't because of seeing the fan trailer though, I have watched Fillion in Firefly, Castle, and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and am a fan of his work. If not Fillion, I would like to see Ben Browder of Farscape/Stargate SG1 fame get the part. Just my 2 cents....

That's funny, I just posted this in the movies section, but removed it after I saw this. I guess we are all just as blown away by it. This is by far the best dang fan made trailer I've ever seen. I refused to buy that it wasn't a real movie because how nicely it was done, and with all the costumes. How the heck did he do that? I guess I shouldn't known it wasn't real though, since the movie industry will never put out a comic book movie that follows the story and actually has fighting in it with...could it be...a little bit of violence maybe since comic books aren't pretty little schoolyard fights, they're brutal. Just read the Superman/Doomday comic. Which the movie sucked by the way, because they refused to follow the original story yet again. Sorry, going off topic, but man it just really gets me. This is an awesome video though, thanks for posting.  :)
