Warner Bros. has hired Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix screenwriter Michael Goldenberg to write the screenplay for Green Lantern 2, according to Variety.
This comes just two months after we reported that Green Lantern writers Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim were brought on to write a treatment for the sequel. Goldenberg also had a hand in writing Green Lantern as well, although it seems he will be writing the sequel on his own.
Filming had just wrapped over the weekend on the first Green Lantern, which is being directed by Martin Campbell and produced by Donald De Line, and is set for release on June 17, 2011.
We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on Green Lantern or Green Lantern 2 as soon as we have more information.
