THR report that the CW are moving forward with the new Green Arrow Tv show. Not many details were known about the show except that it would definitely not be a Smallville spin off (no Justin Hartely) and that Green Lantern duo Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti would produce. New info reveals that the story with be a "modern retelling" (take from that what you will) and that the pilot at least appears to have a director..

Arrow, based on DC Comics' long-running Green Arrow, revolves around the hooded super hero, a wealthy playboy by day who secretly saves the city by night using his enhanced arrows.

The hourlong drama is a modern retelling of the legendary comics character and hails from Green Lantern duo Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim.

Apparently David Nutter is "expected" to direct. The CW also ordered a pilot for the rebooted Beauty And The Beast - which will be loosely based on the 1980s CBS series starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Pearlman.

"Just "arrow"? THATS SO STUPID! they might as was call it "broken arrow" because this going to flop and really a bad move in making tv show with a comic book character that will not have any connection from the comics.

HOWEVER! I do look forward to a rebooted beauty and the beast tv show, based on the 1980's tv show. To me, it is more like retelling the tale to the modernized world, rather that just calling it a reboot. Still, i am looking forward to it.
