There is a completed Booster Gold script with a producer and director attached, but it is just sitting somewhere in a Warner Bros. office for the time being.
If this refrain sounds familiar, it is. The Booster Gold script has been kicking around for a few years now, just waiting on Warner Bros. to give it the greenlight. Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor) complteted the script some time ago. It was submitted to Warner Bros., and then the studio apparently tried figuring out where it fit into the DCEU plans. That is where everything appears to have groung to a halt.
The latest update on it comes from Stentz speaking with Revenge of the Fans.
“I do not know what’s going on with it right now, honestly. And I don’t know if the DC people know what’s going on with it. Their strategy seems to change depending on how […] most recent movie did. But I can tell you that a script has been turned in that the director and producer, Greg Berlanti, has proclaimed himself to be very happy with. And it’s something that’s ready to go, but DC and Warner Bros. would need to give the greenlight to it. The ball is in their court.”
This, of course, is not the first time we’ve heard similar information. Greg Berlanti of Arrowverse fame, has been attached as a producer and possible director for some time now. He said essentially the same thing in regards to the status in March 2018.
“It’s still in development with DC,” Berlanti told The Wrap. “I wrote a draft, they’re trying to figure out both the distance that we still have to travel and how we want to execute it.” He also added that Warner Bros. is trying to figure out “how it’s going to fit into their greater landscape,” meaning the DC Extended Universe.
Will this film ever come to our theaters? It’s anyone’s guess at this point, but we’re not going to suggest holding your breath, sadly.
