Mission Impossible Director Being Eyed to Direct Green Lantern Corps

Ever since the DCEU shakeup which put Walter Hamada in charge, we haven't been hearing much about the other upcoming DC movies. Now we have an update on the Green Lantern Corps movie and it looks like WB has an idea on who they want to direct.

According to That Hashtag Show, WB is currently looking at Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation's Christopher McQuarrie to helm the film. We also have a brief logline that gives us an idea on the film's plot.

"Former test pilot Hal Jordan, now a veteran of the intergalactic group of protectors of peace and justice known as the Green Lantern Corps, mentors young recruit John Stewart."

The movie is said to be looking for an actor at the age range of 39–50 to play Hal Jordan, and with McQuarrie's connections, we could be looking at Tom Cruise as the grizzled old Lantern. Personally, I would prefer to see Firefly' Nathan Fillion take on the role. He's already voiced Jordan in animated movies. He's the perfect age to take on the DCEU's version of Hal.

For now, the only movies we know that are actively in development are Aquaman, Shazam!, Wonder Woman 2, and Flashpoint. There's also a chance that Suicide Squad 2 is also in the works, but we haven't been getting any updates on the movie as of late.

No release date has been announced for Green Lantern Corps yet, but we could be looking at a 2020 release date if the film starts production next year. McQuarrie's Mission Impossible: Fallout hits theaters July 27.
