Ryan Reynolds to star in the new Green Lantern Movie

Ryan Reynolds has been cast to star in the new Green Lantern movie.

Reynolds recently starred as Deadpool in the movie X-Men Origins, Wolverine which led to a spinoff movie. He also starred along with Sandra Bullock in The Proposal which has made over $100 million since it’s debut in theatres.

DC Comic book hero, the Green Lantern, appointed to a special intergalactic troop of superheros by the guardians of the universe, sounds like a role that could be challenging for Reynolds.

Production on the movie will start in January 2010 with Martin Campbell directing.
