Blake Lively Joins "GREEN LANTERN""GOSSIP GIRL" and "THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS" star Blake Lively is set to play the female love interest in the "GREEN LANTERN" film for Warner Bros. Pictures says Heat Vision.
Latino Review first reported the rumor awhile back with Lively playing Carol Ferris, the woman who hires hot-shot test pilot Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) to her father's aerospace company, which she's running, before he gets the ring to become Earth's Green Lantern.
In comic lore, Ferris ultimately becomes the villain Star Sapphire though that's likely not happening in this film. Lively beat out Keri Russell and Jennifer Garner for the role.
Martin Campbell directs the project which begins shooting in March.
Synopsis : In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Reynolds). Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax...he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
