Haley Still Sinestro In “Green Lantern”

When rumors first emerged that Jackie Earle Haley (“Watchmen,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street”) would play the villain Sinestro in the upcoming “Green Lantern” film, the talk was quickly shot down by the actor who denied the report.

Now HitFix reports that Haley remains the only choice for Sinestro by the studio and he’s in the film. The key thing here is that Sinestro will essentially be what Dylan Baker’s Curt Conners was to the “Spider-Man” films – a short role that will expand into a fully-fledged villain in a further sequel down the track.

Peter Saarsgard plains the main villain of the piece, the dangerous telepath Hector Hammond whose contact with an alien force threatens Earth’s security.
