Tom Cruise Reportedly Eyed to Play New Green Lantern

s Tom Cruise wanted for the new Green Lantern movie? Warner Bros. is courting Oscar-winning filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie to direct “Green Lantern Corps“, the new iteration of the DC comic books, according to That Hashtag Show. McQuarrie has worked with the 55-year-old actor on several films, including “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation“, the upcoming “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” and “Jack Reacher“.

WB was previously reported trying to lure Leonardo DiCaprio to play the Joker by hiring Martin Scorsese for an origin movie about the Batman villain. Thus, speculation emerges that the studio is trying to recruit the three-time Golden Globe Award winner by bringing McQuarrie for the “Green Lantern” reboot.

Should the rumor be true, Cruise may play a more experienced Hal Jordan or he could play another version of the superhero or a villainous character in the movie.

Back in January 2017, TheWrap reported that Cruise and several other actors were on the shortlist of candidates to play Hal Jordan in “Green Lantern Corps”. According to the site, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Armie Hammer and Jake Gyllenhaal were also on the shortlist. The site also said DC was considering whether to bring back Ryan Reynolds, who played Jordan in the 2011 film, in the role.
