Aint It Cool News dropped a tiny bombshell today when they revealed that Freddy Krueger himself, Jackie Earle Haley, is set to join the cast of the DC Comics adaptation Green Lantern. According to their source, he is set to play the villian Sinestro. But take the news lightly, because as of now, this is just a rumor.
UPDATE: (10/18/09 10:30 PM PST)Collider spoke with Haley on the red carpet of the Scream 2009 awards last night and the actor revealed that he is not involved with the film, at this point.
"You guys are out in front of it and I don't know anything about it yet. If something comes up I'll let you know," Haley told the site.
While he said that he hadn't screen tested for the part, and the first he heard of the role was through walking the red carpet that night, that doesn't mean he wouldn't sign on to the film. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any news regarding Green Lantern as soon as more information comes in.
