Movie: Two Kiwis Cast In Green Lantern!
Director Taika Cohen (Eagles Vs. Shark) and NZ Legend Temuera "Jake "The Mus" Morrison (Once Were Warriors) has been cast in The Green Lantern directed by fellow Kiwi-born Martin Campbell (Casino Royale). I always wanted Temuera Morrison to return to Hollywood for ages, he is one of the most underrated actors of all-time.
Taika Cohen will play Hal Jordan's (Ryan Reynolds) best friend ThomAs Kalmuka and Temuera Morrison will play Abin Sur, one of the members of the Green Corps who was a main factor Hal Jordan becoming The Green Lantern. Others joining the two are Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong and Academy Award winner Tim Robbins.
The movie is set for a June 2011 release.
