Zack Snyder was approached to direct the film, but he turned down the offer due to his commitment on Watchmen (2009). He would later accept the offer to direct the reboot of Superman.
In 1997, Warner Bros. approached cult filmmaker/comic book writer Kevin Smith to script the film. Smith turned down the offer, believing there were other suitable candidates to make a Green Lantern movie.
At one point Clark Kent/Superman was in the script as a cameo, but he was cut out because the filmmakers didn't want to depend on another superhero for a success.
Comic book writer Geoff Johns, who has worked on the "Green Lantern" comic and made it a resounding success, was signed on as a creative consultant on the film.
This is Ryan Reynolds's third superhero film, after Blade: Trinity (2004) (Hannibal King) and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) (Wade Wilson).
Sam Worthington and Chris Pine were in consideration for the role of Hal Jordan. Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto also screen-tested before finally, Ryan Reynolds was cast as Jordan.
Greg Berlanti signed on to co-write and direct the film in 2007, but he stepped down and handed direction over to Martin Campbell. However, he remained on board as a writer and producer.
