Tyrese Gibson Confirms That He's Been In Talks With Warner Bros. For GREEN LANTERN CORPS

The Fate of the Furious star Tyrese Gibson has been harping on about Green Lantern for years but in a new interview, the actor confirms that he's been talking to Warner Bros. about starring in the movie.

We've been hearing from Tyrese Gibson about possibly playing John Stewart since early 2015 and he keeps on trying to gain fan support on social media for to take on the role in Green Lantern Corps.

However, while you might think that the actor is living in fantasy land, he's now confirmed in an interview with Syfy Wire that he has actually spoken to studio execs at Warner Bros. about the upcoming movie (which does have a writer but neither a director or release date at this stage). 

"I would love to do it. You know, I had a couple meetings at Warner about it. I just think that they’re still trying to figure out what the move is. I would love to officially confirm, but I can’t. And if they go in a different direction, I think they know what’s best for the movie, but the fans started this campaign, and all I’ve done is made use of my social media to let folks know I’m interested."

Him landing the role is far from confirmed then and at 38, Gibson could be far too old to play the hero, especially when a rumoured casting call recently suggested that Warner Bros. wants someone between 21 and 30 to star as John Stewart. With that in mind, he's unlikely to be chosen but it makes sense that they would reach out to The Fast and Furious star given how many headlines his campaign generates.
