Lantern...Green Lantern

Director Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale, The Mask of Zorro) is in talks to direct the upcoming Green Lantern film.

If this holds true and Campbell locks down the director's chair, this would be an excellent move for DC. Scoring big-name high quality directors is something that has been done before with the superhero genre, but for a film like Green Lantern where action would most certainly play a huge role (instead of the dark, brooding Nolan-tone), you need a guy who has primarily done action movies in the past. I feel like Campbell would be a great choice and would be a welcome addition to the ever-expanding list of comic book movie directors.
