After several rounds of casting rumors that featured Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine and Ryan Gosling, we have the semi-official announcement that Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal, Wolverine) is Hal Jordan.
Apparently Reynolds, who looks the part, screen tested alongside Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto, but the decision between the three proved difficult with director Martin Campbell, producer Donald De Line and the studio each having different favorites.
We previously reported that shooting would begin as early as September this year, it seems this has been pushed back to January 2010, though still planning on maintaining the announced June 17th 2011 release date. The budget hasn’t yet been finalized but is believed to be around $150m, the movie is set to film in Sydney, Australia.
