WB taps writers for ‘Green Lantern 2,’ ‘Flash’

Lantern_boffo Warner Bros. apparently likes what they see on the set of “Green Lantern” as Reuters is reporting that a sequel is already in the works. The Ryan Reynolds-starrer, which is currently shooting in Louisiana, will gear up for a second feature with DC Entertainment tapping “Lantern” scribes Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim to pen the treatment.

“Green Lantern,” directed by Martin Campbell and starring Reynolds, Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard, will hit theaters on June 17, 2011.

Flash_boffo Meanwhile, DC Ent. has commissioned Berlanti, Green and Guggenheim to write the upcoming “Flash” pic, which Warner Bros. will also distribute. No word yet on who will direct “Flash.”

Back in September, Warner Bros. announced the creation of DC Entertainment after purchasing comicbook publisher DC Comics. The company, which holds rights to such characters as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and Green Lantern, is run by WB vet Diane Nelson. 

“Jonah Hex,” another WB/DC outfit, will be released on June 18.
