Marc Guggenheim talks Green Lantern movie June 19th, 2009

Green Lantern screen­writer Marc Guggen­heim has just com­pleted his lat­est draft based on Greg Berlanti and Michael Green’s script. He took a few moments to talk to SciFi Wire about the writ­ing process and where the movie is at.

“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.”

“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?’”

“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.“
