Rumor: WB Eyeing Mission: Impossible Director For ‘Green Lantern Corps’

The last time we heard about Green Lantern Corps, director Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) was in talks to helm the project, but it looks like plans have changed. According to The Hashtag ShowMission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie is being eyed to direct the standalone Green Lantern movie.

This wouldn’t be the first time that McQuarrie has stepped into a massive franchise. The director previously joined the Mission: Impossible series in the fifth chapter. We still don’t know much about the Green Lantern Corps movie, although it was previously reported that the film would be a buddy cop movie in space, with Hal Jordan being the more experienced Lantern and John Stewart being the rookie.

Alongside the rumour, The Hashtag Show speculates that if the project moves forward with McQuarrie, there’s a decent chance that we could see Tom Cruise cast as the older Hal Jordan. The pair previously worked together on multiple projects and Cruise was on the shortlist of actors in contention for the role last year. This might sound strange, but Tom Cruise as an older, more experienced Hal Jordan could actually work for the DC Extended Universe, especially if he’s teaching John Stewart.

Green Lantern Corps was expected to land in theatres in 2020, although we’re not 100% sure what is currently happening with the DC Extended Universe.
