Gosling Sought For Green Lantern?

Warner Bros. Pictures are keen on landing Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling to portray the titular hero Hal Jordan in their upcoming film version of the superhero comic “Green Lantern” reports Latino Review.

The likes of Seth Green, Justin Long and David Boreanaz had previously been rumored for the part, but a reliable studio source of theirs denies such claims and say Gosling is the main actor being sought.

In the comics, Hal Jordan is a test pilot who was given a power ring by a dying alien, and became a member of the Green Lantern Corps – an interstellar organization of police overseen by the Guardians of the Universe.

Greg Berlanti is assigned to direct the film which is due out in 2010.
