Rumor: Reynolds, Cruise, Gyllenhaal, Cooper, McHale, Hammer On Green Lantern Corps Hal Jordan Shortlist


Sandwich-themed Hollywood gossip site The Wrap is claiming to have the shortlist Warner Bros. is looking at for the role of Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern Corps movie. Ryan Reynolds, who played Jordan in the ill-fated 2011 Green Lantern film is on the list, along with Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper, Arnie Hammer, and Joel McHale. Originally announced in 2015, we recently heard reports that Green Lantern Corps will focus on Hal Jordan and John Stewart in a buddy cop film described as "Lethal Weapon in space."

The film was originally set for 2020 release, but seems to have ramped up production recently, hiring screenwriters David Goyer and Justin Rhodes. At least one actor has openly applied for the John Stewart role. It should be noted that these specific details have not been officially confirmed through any kind of studio announcement, though DC executive Geoff "Jeff" Johns did confirm that the film would be called Green Lantern Corps and focus on multiple ring bearers.
