Jeff Robinov Updates Status On The Flash And Green Lantern 2
The president of the Warner Bros. film group confirms that there's a 'solid script' for the long-in-development Flash film, while also dropping some interesting info about the possible Green Lantern sequel...
Speaking to LA Times, Jeff Robinov - president of the Warner Brothers film group - talks more about the possibility of a sequel to the recent box office bomb Green Lantern, saying that they have to find a way to balance the amount of space and Earth time (unlike the first film, which had much more time on Earth than space) and that the film had a 'decent opening'. He also reveals that the executives at WB definitely want a new director for the sequel, saying that they weren't 'thrilled' in working with Martin Campbell on the first film, as well as the possibility that they may make significant changes to the outline they already have for the sequel.
Robinov also confirms that their pending Flash film has a 'solid script', and that we may see that or Green Lantern 2 later in 2013 or sometime in 2014, while also expressing more interest in a Justice League film.
“We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience,” said Warner Bros. film group President Jeff Robinov, pointing to the film’s box office debut of $53 million. “To go forward we need to make it a little edgier and darker with more emphasis on action…. And we have to find a way to balance the time the movie spends in space versus on Earth.”
Later that year or in 2014, Warner could go ahead with a second Green Lantern or Flash movie. Robinov said the studio has “a solid script” for the Scarlet Speedster. The executive also remains interested in bringing DC heroes together for a “Justice League” movie.
