By Christopher Olivier - 12/19/2012

Brad Pitt (Inglourious Basterds) as Hal Jordan

I always pictured Hal Jordan as an older, active dude with a bit of grey on his temples and Brad Pitt could definitely give him some character.



Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) as Carol Ferris

She could really sell being the boss of a large air base where she has to constantly bust balls to gain respect.



Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds) as Krona

Krona should have been the first Green Lantern villain because he's all about uncovering the origins of Oa and imprisoned by Abin Sur. Upon Krona's escape, Abin Sur is fatality injured and crash lands in the Sierra desert. He dies right after passing the ring unto air pilot, Hal Jordan.



Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) as Sinestro

This was so much fun to think about. I think I mostly want to see Waltz with that ridiculously beautiful mustache.



Kerry Washington (Django Unchained) as Katma Tui

Katma is an intelligent and skilled Green Lantern. Her character would also provide a secondary love interest for Hal, ultimately ruining his relationship with Carol.



Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Four Rooms) as Tomar-Re

Roth is such an awesome and under-rated character actor. His regular speaking voice is perfect for Tomar-Re, along with his build and expressions.



Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction) as Kilowog

Rhames seems like he would really enjoy playing the older, experienced tough guy. I haven't seen him in that type of role lately and I think he'd be a great fit.



Bruce Willis (Pulp Fiction) as Abin Sur

I'd love to see him in action; how he and Sinestro imprisoned Krona, and his death years later from injuries sustained battling Krona. You get to see his friendship with Abin Sur and is sort of the catalyst to his turn later on.



Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Inglourious Basterds) as John Stewart

Hey, a Tarantino movie isn't the same without Samuel L. and would be a bit of a mentor to Hal Jordan later on.



Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction) as Hector Hammond

Stoltz plays smarmy really well, and I would love to see him as a comic book villain. He's another under-rated actor.

This is just...wow. Waltz as Sinestro!? Roth as Tomar-Re? Rhames as Kilowog? Those sound like pure brilliance. And not just that - your concept of the characters, chiefly how Abin Sur's duty days along with his relation with Sinestro should be explored in the movie is just what I demand to see in a Green lantern movie. Terrific job, man! Let me dream about this whole thing now...

Nice stuff!

But QUENTIN is absolutely wrong for GL.
lol
I know you were going for a TARANTINO CASTING but.....

I would replace SAMUEL L. with JAMIE FOXX.
SAM'S too old for STEWART.

But I like this a lot!

Great cast, but Brad Pitt is way to old.

Very cool cast, interesting idea too! Well done.

I agree 100% with DDD@. it's a good cast with Terantino as the connection but he, as the director, is a bad fit. other than that i think youve got a great castwith, like DDD@ said, Foxx for SLJ but definitely look to use SLJ somewhere if Terantino is directing this this.

I can imagine Samuel L. Jackson as John Stewart:
(talking to Larfleeze) "Say 'mine' again, mother[fricker]"
