According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has hired David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to write the script for Green Lantern Corps, based on a story by Goyer and Geoff Johns. Goyer will also serve as a producer.
Deadline says that the movie is described as Lethal Weapon in space, and is based on a comic book origin story. The focus will be on two characters: Hal Jordan, and John Stewart.
Goyer is best known among Batman fans for helping Christopher Nolan write his entire Dark Knight trilogy. He also wrote Man of Steel, and an early version of Batman v Superman, before Chris Terrio came in to rework it.
Green Lantern Corps is tentatively scheduled for a July 24, 2020 release. As with the other movies, that date can certainly change.
Update: During a 2013 reddit AMA, Goyer was asked how he would do a Green Lantern movie. His reply? “Better.”
