    Nell,
    Funny story. I have a friend who is a pretty talented screenplay writer (has won a few national/regional awards, but has yet to sell one). Back in high school (probably 10-12 years ago) I remember him telling me how cool a western with aliens would be and that one day he would write a script for it.
    Well, flash forward to today, and he has written several full-length screenplays, but has yet to get to that one…and now here we are! Two of his favorite actors in HIS IDEA! hahaha.
    Snooze ya lose I guess!
    I too am pumped for these!
    Tom

    Agreed about Green Lantern, and while you’re waiting, I recommend an animated movie called “Green Lantern: First Flight”. Chris Meloni plays Hal Jordan, Victor Garber plays Sinestro.
