More Green Lantern Concept Art

1 February 2010 10:48 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With director Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern set to shoot next month, images and info about the movie have been hitting the net almost every day.  In the past few weeks we’ve learned the movie will be more Iron Man than Batman Begins, Sinestro, Kilowog, and Tomar-Re will all be in the film, Karen Goulekas (The Day After Tomorrow) Kent Houston (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and Jim Berney (I Am Legend) will be the people in charge of the special effects, and we also got concept art of Kilowog last week.

Now, thanks to io9, we’ve got more concept art and it’s the Guardians of the Universe and what Mark Strong as Sinestro would look like.  As you can see in the image above, they’re not straying too far from the comic.  Expect plenty more Green Lantern updates over the coming months.

Sony Handling ‘Green Lantern’ Visual Effects

27 January 2010 8:25 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Over the past few months we’ve had pretty steady updates about the upcoming comic book adaptation, Green Lantern, from Mark Strong being in talks to play the villain Sinestro and Blake Lively being cast as Hal Jordan’s love interest, to the project getting an award-winning crew and (probably the most important news) the movie getting the official green light. Today we get another update that Sony has been tapped to handle the visual effects on the film.

Variety reports the news that Sony Imageworks will serve as the lead visual f/x studio on Green Lantern. The overall effects supervisors are still Karen Goulekas (The Day After Tomorrow) and Kent Houston (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), but we learn now that Jim Berney (I Am Legend) will be the lead effects supervisor for Imageworks.

27 January 2010 5:41 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Are you sick of hearing about Green Lantern yet? I hope not, because you can surely expect the steady stream of news coming out of Warner Bros to continue. They.ve done a great job the past few months keeping their upcoming adaptation fresh in the minds of comic and film fans alike. It seems like once a week we.ve been getting casting updates, story details have begun to slowly trickle down, and now, in a bit of behind the scenes news, Variety is reporting that Imageworks will be working their digital mastery on the film.s visual effects. If you were hoping this would give you an idea of what the film will look like, unfortunately you.ll be sorely disappointed, since the VFX supervisors assigned to Lantern all have produced such different work. On board are Karen Goulekas and Kent Houston,who put together The Day After »

Green Lantern Hires VFX Crew: Karen Goulekas, Kent Houston and Jim Berney

27 January 2010 12:38 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Green Lantern heading into production in the coming months, Warner Bros. has hired the VFX supervisors that will bring him to life.  According to Variety,  Karen Goulekas (The Day After Tomorrow) Kent Houston (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and Jim Berney (I Am Legend) will be the people in charge of making the effects look real.  Also, the studio has hired Sony Pictures Imageworks as the lead visual effects studio on the film.  They’ve previously done Watchmen and Superman Returns and both of those films looked great.

With the combined experience of the team WB has hired for their next big comic book movie, I’m very confident this thing is going to look great.  Green Lantern is scheduled for release June 17, 2011 with Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively as the leads.

'Green Lantern' Gets the Green Light

7 January 2010 9:15 PM, PST | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Green Lantern, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s adaptation of one of DC’s most popular superheroes, has officially been given the green light.

Not that there was ever any doubt. Over the past few months, numerous reports about film locations and casting have circulated, but no news is ever quite as encouraging as a start date, which visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas posted about on her blog.

"'Green Lantern' got the official green light today," Goulekas reported. "And not a second too soon — only 10 weeks out from shooting!"

Filming of the superhero epic, which is set to star Ryan Reynolds as test pilot-turned-space cop Hal Jordan, will reportedly take place in New Orleans. The talent assembled by director Martin Campbell includes cinematographer Dian Beebe, who won an Oscar for Memoirs of a Geisha; Lord of the Rings’ production and costume designers Grant Major and Ngila Dickson, respectively »

Green Lantern reportedly starts filming in March - but where's the cast?

7 January 2010 3:42 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Despite a gaping hole where there should be a full cast list, the Warner Bros superhero movie Green Lantern is to start filming in just ten weeks.

In terms of casting, we know only that Ryan Reynolds is playing the lead role of Hal Jordan, a pilot who becomes the eponymous hero when he inherits a mystical ring whose green energy can be manipulated into solid shapes.

News that director Martin Campbell will begin filming in New Orleans sometime in March came from the film's visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas.

In a posting on her blog, which has since been removed, she wrote:

"Green Lantern got the official green light today. And not a second too soon - only 10 weeks out from shooting.

Green Lantern sees the (Green) Light

7 January 2010 12:00 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Never in any serious doubt Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern adaptation, starring Mr. Scarlett Johnasson – Ryan Reynolds, was given the green light today, throwing yet another comic book movie into the ring.

This will be Warners and DC’s follow up to the Josh Brolin fronted Jonah Hex, due out sometime this year.

SuperheroHype broke the news today, reporting a post on visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas’s blog which is neatly succinct:

Wow! Been a long time since I posted! But today is a day worth posting about!

Green Lantern got the official green light today! And not a second too soon – only 10 weeks out from shooting!

While it’s great news we are a go – now we have to actually get our prep done in 10 weeks!

Campbell’s edgy, dark thriller Edge of Darkness, starring Mel Gibson, is out soon and this should prove a suitable tangent to »

Green Lantern Finally Gets The Greenlight

7 January 2010 8:44 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's been 6 months since Ryan Reynolds was confirmed as the lead in The Green Lantern, and it's taken since then for the production to leave Australia, find a new home in New Orleans, and eventually track down a female lead. And now, after all that waiting, production is finally ready to begin! Superhero Hype! saw that visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas posted on her blog that the movie has been given the official green light, and shooting will start in 10 weeks, a.k.a. sometime in March. This is right in line with what we mentioned yesterday in the news about the Deadpool screenwriters-- basically Ryan Reynolds will be done shooting Green Lantern by the summer, and then in fighting shape to play the merc with a mouth. Now the really fun part of the Green Lantern production begins-- set photos! Can't wait to see Reynolds wearing the ring. »

A Green Light for Green Lantern

7 January 2010 8:40 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

There wasn't any doubt that Warner Bros.' Green Lantern would be going forward, but the film now has an official greenlight, says visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas. "Green Lantern got the official green light today," Goulekas announced on her blog. "And not a second too soon - only 10 weeks out from shooting!" While plenty of work has been done on the film, the green light allows money to really flow out to the production, so Goulekas and her crew now have two and a half months to get things together for a film that may include up to 1300 effects shots. [via SuperHeroHype] Martin Campbell will direct Green Lantern, which stars Ryan Reynolds and is scheduled for release on June 17, 2011. »

'Green Lantern' Begins Shooting In March

7 January 2010 8:16 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

In brightest day, through blackest night, "Green Lantern" officially has the green light.

The DC Comics adaptation, which stars Ryan Reynolds as pilot-turned-superhero Hal Jordan, has received the official go ahead from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, according to the blog of visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas.

"'Green Lantern' got the official green light today," she reported yesterday. "And not a second too soon — only 10 weeks out from shooting!"

Given the swirl of rumors and reports around the topic of "Green Lantern" — from the hiring of Martin Campbell as the film's director to the eventual casting of Reynolds, who already has a comic book franchise of his own in the form of "Deadpool" — it's hardly surprising that the movie has received the official green light from the powers that be. Still, with delays bogging down other high-profile superhero projects, one can never be too careful about counting their »
