Finn Wittrock’s Green Lantern Series to Begin Filming in Late 2022

HBO Max’s Green Lantern series is finally set to enter production as it will reportedly begin filming late this year. The series stars Finn Wittrock and Jeremy Irvine.

Green Lantern, DC’s iconic superhero who draws his power from a magical ring, is coming to HBO Max in a new live-action series. Writers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Seth Grahame-Smith will tell the story of several generations of men who take on the mantle, beginning with Alan Scott in 1941, reimagined here as a closeted FBI agent. Vickie Thomas Casting has already brought on Jeremy Irvine (“War Horse”) as Alan; Finn Wittrock (“American Horror Story”) will play Guy Gardner, a 1980s version of the hero. Production on the series is set to start later this year in Los Angeles.

Finn Wittrock To Star In Sony’s Adaptation Of Chuck Klosterman’s ‘Downtown Owl’

Sony Pictures has set an all-star cast for its adaptation of Chuck Klosterman’s Downtown Owl with Lily Rabe, Academy Award nominee Ed Harris , Vanessa Hudgens, Finn Wittrock, Jack Dylan Grazer and August Blanco Rosenstein. Rabe will also be directing the pic with long-time collaborator Hamish Linklater, joining her as co-director. Linklater, who most recently starred in Midnight Mass, also adapted the screenplay. T Bone Burnett is doing the music.

The film was part of the Sundance Institute Creative Producing Summit and Talent Forum and will be produced by Bettina Barrow and Rabe of Kill Claudio Productions, Rebecca Green and Linklater. Laura Rister is exec producing as well as Lee Broda. Tom McLeod is co-executive producer. The pic is currently in production in Minnesota.

The story is set somewhere in rural North Dakota in 1983 and is the fictional town called Owl where you won’t find cable or pop culture, but you will find a downtown with a first-rate Chevrolet dealership, three bars and a new high school English teacher whose presence upends the lives of locals just in time for a white-out blizzard for the ages. Sony Pictures’ Stage 6 Films acquired worldwide rights to the film. Barrow and Rister negotiated the deal with Stage 6 Films.

Deep Water (2022): First Look & Release Date

Deep Water (2022): First Look & Release Date

The film’s release was postponed twice, but is now set to stream on Prime Video from March 18th.

Deep Water follows Vic and Melinda Van Allen, a wealthy couple going to some steep lengths to keep their rocky marriage together. When the men involved in Melinda’s entanglements start going missing, the pair’s mutual resentment and mind games escalate in the deadliest of ways.

Directed by Fatal Attraction’s Adrian Lyne, Deep Water is full of stars. The screenplay’s written by Zach Helm and Sam ‘Euphoria’ Levinson, and the cast includes Finn Wittrock, Rachel Blanchard, and Lil Rel Howery, to name a few.

This is Adrian Lyne’s first directorial film in 20 years, and dark twisted relationships are kind of his forte – he’s also behind Indecent Proposal. The story’s adapted from the novel Deep Water, written by Patricia Highsmith, the author that spawned the stories of Strangers on a Train and Carol. If those credentials are anything to go by, Deep Water will be well worth the wait.

Green Lantern Show Star Gives Update on HBO Max Adaptation

Green Lantern Show Star Gives Update on HBO Max Adaptation

Finn Wittrock, set to play Guy Gardner in the upcoming DC series Green Lantern, provides an update on the HBO Max project announced back in 2019.

Finn Wittrock, who is set to portray Guy Gardner in the upcoming Green Lantern TV show, gives an update on the HBO Max adaptation. The Green Lantern universe is coming back into the world of live-action, but not on the big screen. Despite a Green Lantern Corps film having been in development since 2014, Warner Bros. is bringing the Emerald Knights to the small screen through HBO Max. Arrowverse creator Greg Berlanti is shepherding the DC drama with Seth Grahame-Smith attached as the showrunner. The DC drama will span multiple decades while exploring several prominent Green Lantern characters. The lineup will consist of Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Kilowog, and Sinestro. Green Lantern is also introducing Bree Jarta, an original character created for the series.

Despite Green Lantern being announced back in October 2019, it has been a slow development process. It wasn’t until October 2020 that HBO Max officially ordered Green Lantern to series with a 10-episode commitment for season 1. While already having announced multiple characters, the project has only two confirmed cast members thus far. Jeremy Irvine will star as Alan Scott, Earth’s first Green Lantern, whose story takes place in 1941. The second time period will be 1984, with Guy Gardner portrayed by Wittrock. Outside of Alan and Guy, the other Green Lanterns have still not been cast.

While there is still a good chunk of roles to be cast, Wittrock gives eager fans an update on Green Lantern‘s progression. During an Instagram Q&A, a fan asks if the American Horror Story star could reveal anything about the upcoming DC project. Due to contractual obligations, Wittrock couldn’t reveal anything spoiler-y, but he assures everyone that Green Lantern is still happening and that he is a fan of the script. Check out his full response below:

I am sworn to secrecy, and especially since I am new to the DCU, I don’t want them to kick me out of the universe! But I can tell you that the script is great, and that I’m just starting to get into Guy Gardner shape!

Despite the slow development, it can also be seen as a good thing for Green Lantern to be taking its time. Since the announcement in 2019, it has been said by HBO Max, Warner Bros., and the Green Lantern creatives that this will be one of the biggest DC TV shows of all time. The production budget is also said to have a movie quality to it, meaning they’re putting a lot of resources into this DC project. With such commitment, it makes sense for the studio not to rush anything, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected productions in general.

Based on Wittrock’s comments, the fact that he’s starting to get into Guy Gardner-shape likely means that filming could start sometime later this year. It wouldn’t be shocking at this point if Green Lantern becomes available sometime in early-2023. Given how special effects-heavy the show is going to be, there’s going to be a ton of post-production work done on all 10 episodes. Hopefully Green Lantern season 1 will at least have rounded out its cast by this summer and be ready to start rolling the cameras before the year’s end.

Thriller “Deep Water” to Stream on Hulu After Theatrical Release Nixed

Thriller “Deep Water” to Stream on Hulu After Theatrical Release Nixed

Deep Water was pulled from Disney’s theatrical release calendar and will no longer premiere in theaters next January

Deep Water, an erotic thriller starring Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck, is heading to streaming after the film was removed from Disney’s theatrical release schedule Thursday. 

The movie will stream on Hulu — which is majority-owned by The Walt Disney Company — in the U.S., and is expected to stream on Amazon Prime Video overseas, Deadline reports. The outlet also shared that Deep Water is landing on streaming amidst a “feeble theatrical marketplace” for “adult fare,” citing West Side Story‘s disappointing weekend opening.

Deep Water was initially set to premiere in theaters Jan. 14, 2022. The film has not yet been given an official streaming release date.

Affleck, 49, and de Armas, 33, star in Deep Water as married couple Vic and Melinda Van Allen. The Allens stay in their passionless marriage by striking up affairs on the side, all while the people close to them begin to turn up dead. 

The film is based on the 1957 Patricia Highsmith novel of the same name and comes from Fatal Attraction director Adrian Lyne. Deep Water also stars Tracy Letts, Lil Rel Howery, Rachel Blanchard, Finn Wittrock and Jacob Elordi. 

Disney Pulls ‘Deep Water’ From Release Schedule

Disney Pulls ‘Deep Water’ From Release Schedule

Disney said Thursday that Deep Water, the 20th Century Studios erotic thriller starring Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas, co-starring Finn Wittrock and directed by Adrian Lyne, has been pulled from the release schedule. It had been slated to hit theaters on January 14, 2022.

The studio did not give a reason for the move on the pic, which is the first movie from the Indecent Proposal and Fatal Attraction director in almost two decades and is based on the Patricia Highsmith novel. Deadline has reached out for comment.

Affleck and de Armas star as Vic and Melinda Van Allen, a married couple whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them start turning up dead. The couple staves off divorce in a loveless marriage by allowing each to take lovers, but it becomes messy as Highsmith exposed the surface façade of American suburban life.

Zack Helm and Sam Levinson adapted the book. Finn Wittrock, Tracy Letts, Rachel Blanchard, Dash Mihok, Lil Rel Howery, Jacob Elordi, Kristen Connolly and Jade Fernandez also star.

No word on whether Deep Water will be rescheduled.
