Here's something only a geek would find remotely interesting.
Rainn Wilson and Nathan Fillion had a meeting at DC Comics. Wilson tweeted “Could be some good shit percolating…” Fillion wrote a similar tweet: “Some great shit percolated at a meeting today with @rainnwilson and @nathanfillion. And, I grabbed me a sweet DC Encyclopedia.”
"Nathan Fillion or Justin Timberlake?"
I have no idea what project they might be meeting about, but I would guess that it was probably comic book related and not a superhero movie, considering the meeting was with DC Comics and not Warner Bros. But it should be noted that many fans have been saying that Fillion would make an great Hal Jordon. There was even that awesome fan made Green Lantern movie trailer a couple months back. It’s also possible that they are meeting to discuss voicing one of DC Comic’s upcoming animated home movies. Fillion had previously voiced the character of Steve Trevor in the Wonder Woman movie.
Whatever this project might be, be it movie, television, comics or whatever, ow could you go wrong with Rainn Wilson, Nathon Fillion and potentially DC Comics?
Certainly sounds interesting. We all know DC have had a Green Lantern feature in the development pipeline for some time now, and cameras are supposedly due to start rolling in Sydney in or around September, with Martin Campbell helming. Once scheduled for December of 2010, the film is now slated for June 17, 2011. We don’t know any casting at this point, and only the thinnest story details. Perhaps Comic Con will bring more news. I personally think if done right, AKA The Dark Knight, there's no reason why this couldn't be the next big Superhero franchise to storm the Box Office. Until then, there's always the Animated Movie Version.
UPDATE: The rumor mill has begun to churn. AICN have posted an article on the Green Lantern screen test of Justin Timberlake. Bare in mind, this is all unconfirmed atm.
