What happens when James Bond meets the Green Lantern?
We’ll likely find out. Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is in talks to direct the live-action film based on the DC Comics superhero. Variety notes that this latest news puts Lantern at the top of DC properties being adapted by Warner Bros., along with the Jonah Hex, starring Josh Brolin, which is set to start up in April.
While Warner’s is hoping that Christopher Nolan will follow up last year’s smash The Dark Knight with another batflick — which is reportedly in the very early writing stages according to Internet buzz — other DC-based projects like Justice League were expected to happen quickly but have stalled.
