Deadpool is Green Lantern!

It broke late on my movie gossip websites last night that Ryan Reynolds has entered into final negotiations to play Hal Jordan, the best-known carrier of the mantel of Green Lantern.

Reynolds, of course, is no stranger to the superhero genre. He's still on the big screen right now playing Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He was the vampire slayer Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity. And back when David S. Goyer, co-writer of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, was attached to do a movie version of The Flash, Goyer frequently mentioned his desire to have Reynolds play Wally West.

The movie version of Green Lantern is being directed by Martin Campbell, who directed the two Zorro films (Mask of... and Legend of...) and the two James Bond films GoldenEye and Casino Royale.

They want to start filming in January for a Summer 2011 release.
