NEWS/RUMOR: Captain Kirk to Go Green?
Alright, so this one has a bit of a story to it.
Earlier this week, WB and DC announced that Green Lantern would begin shooting in Australia in Mid September. However, it was not known who would be taking up the mantle of the main character, Hal Jordan. Well, IESB may have changed that...
IESB has gotten word out of the Warner Brother's halls that there is a short list of possibles for the casting of the green superhero Hal Jordan. Top of the list is Chris Pine who is currently set to star as Captain Kirk this summer in J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek film.
Then, the good people over at Latino Review followed-up that story with a confirmation, saying that "according to my sources THE OFFICIAL OFFER is out Chris Pine for the role."
Now this is still in the rumor stages, as nothing has been confirmed. Actually, Collider has reported that the rumor is simply that, a rumor...
I’m sorry to be the one to report that these stories are just NOT true.
At least according to my source, and mine is the same one that said Anton Yelchin wasn’t in the running either. Trust me, the person I’m speaking with would know.
While Latino Review and IESB have definitely broken a lot of casting stories, this is not going to be one of them.
So WTF? Well, I'm leaning towards Latino Review and IESB on this one. However, this is still in the rumor stages, and if it is true, Pine has neither declined nor accepted the offer.
More on this as it develops...
Go see something good!
