We can’t do a Justice League of America story, it seems, without triggering a wave of comments from the RT faithful debating the merits of various members of the Green Lantern Corps, and arguing which of them should be “the” Green Lantern in the movie.

We still don’t have any JLA Green Lantern casting news for you — but we can tell you Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has hired a team to bring the ring-wielding galactic guardian to the big screen in his very own film. According to a report published yesterday, the studio has tapped Greg Berlanti to write and direct Green Lantern.

Berlanti, best known for his work on TV shows such as Dirty Sexy Money, Brothers & Sisters, Everwood, and Dawson’s Creek, will be writing the script with Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. These days, Guggenheim is a writer/producer on Berlanti’s Brothers & Sisters — but, as Variety notes, his past work on print editions of Amazing Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Blade make him uniquely qualified for the gig. For his part, Green — who’s currently an executive producer on NBC’s Heroes — worked on Smallville and wrote the DC title Superman/Batman.

The Variety report pegs the feature-length Lantern as Hal Jordan, summing up his story below:

“Green Lantern” was hatched in 1940. Hal Jordan, a second-generation test pilot, is an ordinary man who has been charged with defending a sector of the universe.
