Could you see Quentin Tarantino direct ' Green Lantern'? Apparently, Mr. Tarantino couldn't seeing as how he turned down the opportunity when he was offered the rights long before the script for the current film was written, according to an interview he did with MTV.
Tarantino did talk, however, about how there was a time when in his 20's that all he wanted to see were Superhero films.
"I was offered the 'Green Lantern...Not since it's been a script, but just like, 'Hey we own the 'Green Lantern.' Would you like it?'"
While he would not necessarily want to direct a film centered around an already exisiting comic book character, Tarantino stated that superhero films are not completely out of the question...just not adaptations.
if I was in my 20s, this would be the genre I'd want to specialize in," he said. "But they weren't making them then, or at least not the right ones. But there also is an aspect where I've kind of outgrown that a little bit."
Thinking this over, I do not know if I could even see Tarantino behind a Green Lantern film. However, if DC ever wanted to do a Batgirl film revolving around Cassandra Cain and Lady Shiva; that is something I could definitely wrap my head around. Just look at how awesome Kill Bill is? What do you guys think?
It wouldn’t be an existing comic book character. I’m a writer. I’d want to use my imagination and not have to fight with geeks’ memories of how this character should be and, ‘Oh, I cast an actor as opposed to a bodybuilder’ or it’s not as good as the way [DC Comics artist] Neal Adams drew him.’ If I were to do something like that, I would want the fun of coming up with the superhero myself.
