"Casino Royale" Director to Light "Green Lantern?"

Go Warner Brothers! Go! Though it's not yet confirmed, reports are in that Martin Campbell, director of "Goldeneye," "The Mask of Zorro," and (his masterpiece) "Casino Royale," is in talks to helm the upcoming Green Lantern film.

It was reported a while back that Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green and Greg Berlanti were nearing the final stages of the script. Most assumed Greg Berlanti would direct, but apparently Warner Brothers wants someone who has proven himself in the director's chair.

While that sucks for Berlanti, the co-writer has also stated he's fine with the decision-- And so am I. Campbell has been slowly climbing the ladder over the course of his career. His reinvention of Bond (twice) mark two of the best movies in the series. The same praise goes for his revitalization of Zorro with "The Mask of Zorro."

Warner Brothers has proved, once again, they're pretty smart. I hope Campbell takes the job and I can't wait to see a Green Lantern movie! More when it comes.
