GREEN ARROW TV Series On The Way At The CW!
Yes, ol Ollie Queen is finally getting his own series, but by the sounds of things this may not be a Smallville spin-off..
EW report that the CW are getting to work on a pilot for an hour long Green Arrow Tv series. Now as I'm sure most of you are aware, Justin Hartley played the character for a few years in Smallville, also on the CW. So he will be a part of the new show right? Nope..
Justin Hartley is not involved in the new project, however. Here’s who is on board developing the show: Executive producers/writers are Greg Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters) and Marc Guggenheim (FlashForward), who also both worked on last year’s Green Lantern, along with Andrew Kreisberg (Vampire Diaries, Fringe). Berlanti Productions is producing in association with Warner Bros. Television.
It is still possible that the show will be a part of Smallville's canon but with a different actor in the role, but with a completely new creative team behind the show it's extremely unlikely. We do have some additional info from the ever reliable Deadline..
I hear that David Nutter is interested in directing the project, which takes the comic book character, created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp, and sets him in a new world with an original story that is not based on the comics.
Ah, that old chestnut. I'm sure Green Arrow fans will be just delighted to hear that! Updates as and when we have em, but for now, who would you guys like to see in the role?
