Visual effects superviser Karen Goulekas had cause to celebrate yesterday and so do fans of an upcoming superhero film. Goulekas announced on her blog that Green Lantern, which she is working on, got the official green light yesterday. Here's her blog post:

Wow! Been a long time since I posted! But today is a day worth posting about! RELATED: Frank Miller Opens Up About Serving as the Inspiration Behind Zack Snyder's DC Movies

Green Lantern got the official green light today! And not a second too soon - only 10 weeks out from shooting!

While it's great news we are a go - now we have to actually get our prep done in 10 weeks!


But we have an amazing crew - so we will make it happen!

The Martin Campbell-directed Green Lantern will star Ryan Reynolds and is set for a June 17, 2011 release.
