Martin Campbell may direct February 6th, 2009

Mar­tin Camp­bell, direc­tor of Casino Royale, Gold­en­Eye and Ver­ti­cal Limit is in talks to direct the Green Lantern movie adap­ta­tion, report Vari­ety. With WB’s big Super­man and Jus­tice League movie plans falling through it looks like Green Lantern is mov­ing to the top of the hit list; bring­ing with it Mar­tin Campbell’s tal­ent and expe­ri­ence and a renewed desire to make this much more than another super­hero fran­chise, espe­cially given the recent and phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess of that dark and emo­tional Bat­man movie.

Greg Berlanti was orig­i­nally inline to direct, he has since been attached to the movie, “This is where I leave you”, yet remains a strong influ­ence as one of the three writ­ers that penned the screen­play (the oth­ers being Marc Guggen­heim and Michael Green).
