George Miller To Direct Green Lantern Movie?

IESB have a script review of new proposed Green Lantern movie

IESB says:
The script is shit-hot - heck, it even features cameos from some other DC heroes like Superman!

But more so, writers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green have gotten the character of the title character right.

"Also, unlike other recent superhero movies, this Green Lantern story has science fiction elements such as visiting other planets and major space battles'', writes Robert, adding that the film has the potential to be "bigger" than both "The Dark Knight" and "Iron Man".

In the review they believe George Miller who was suppose to be directing the long disrupted problematic Justice League Movie will possibly take the directors chair in The Green Lantern.
Changing gears for a sec, let's see what's currently going on with Justice League of America. Last week there were reports that the movie is finally moving forward. Guess what - that's not what we heard.

IESB found out the complete opposite from various sources at WB -- the movie will not move forward in its current incarnation and a lot has to do with the success of The Dark Knight. Warner Bros. is not willing to risk pissing off Christopher Nolan or Christian Bale and their intent would be to move forward with a third Batman film instead of introducing another Batman in a JLA film.

Officially WB is stating that Justice League of America is on hold due to the potential SAG strike. We have been advised from various sources that the truth is that George Miller has been pulled off the project. We have contacted all parties involved including Kennedy/Miller and other producers but they have declined to comment at this time.

So does that mean that Miller is out of a job? Nope, we have been told that some execs over at Warner Bros. would like Miller to take over The Green Lantern project. Any truth to the rumor? Only time will tell but one thing is certain in my purest fan boy opinion - this script totally kicks ass!"
