"If this casting rumor from IESB pans out, Chris Pine is about to become a two-franchise man.
That's assuming the new Captain Kirk wouldn't turn down an offer to play Hal Jordan in Martin Campbell's Green Lantern - which, per producer Donald DeLine, will begin shooting this September in Australia (in order to make a December 17, 2010 release date). According to IESB's source (and Patrick Sauriol has evidently heard likewise), Pine is at the top of a list of potential 'under 30s' Jordans. This makes much more sense than previous rumors, which sounded like total fanboy inventions (especially Nathan Fillion)."
I was just talking about these two movies with a good friend of mine. Weird. But I can see Chris Pine holding up that ring and saying, "In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight Let those who worship evil's might, Beware my power... Green Lantern's light!"
