Ryan Reynolds Beats Bradley Cooper & Jared Leto For 'Green Lantern' Role
Martin Campbell will direct. The studio is still working on the picture’s budget, but production is expected to begin in January.
Reynolds played Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” a performance that prompted Fox to begin development on a spinoff film. He also starred opposite Sandra Bullock in the romantic comedy “The Proposal,” which crossed the $100 million mark this week.
Reynolds vied for the superhero role along with “The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto.
