Could those who worship evil's might beware Chris Pine's power, Green Lantern's light!

There was a rumour a little while back that a crew member of the Star Ship Enteprise could be in the running for the most powerful weapon in the Universe - a Green Lantern's power ring. That person was Anton Yelchin (Chekov). The internet generally said, "What the..?!" Now it looks as if half of that rumour is totally incorrect. It won't be the weapons officer it's the Captain. Kirk to be exact.

IESB.net has posted a rumor that Star Trek's Chris Pine ("James T. Kirk") is being eyed as the title character in Warner Brothers' upcoming Green Lantern movie.

Pine would play Hal Jordan, a pilot who finds a powerful ring and its lantern-like battery when a spaceship crashes on Earth. Jordan is selected to succeed the craft's dying occupant as the next Green Lantern, a galactic guardian who is a member of an interstellar corps, the site reported, citing an anonymous source.

The movie has set up production offices and is on track to start shooting in September in Australia for the previously announced 17th December 2010 release date.

Pine is reportedly at the top of a list that also supposedly includes Terminator Salvation's Sam Worthington.

Neither Pine or Worthingtom seem Hal Jordanny enough. They are apparantly going for someone under 30 so Nathan Fillion and Aaron Eckhart are out. I just don't know. Would you be happy with Chris Pine as the Green Lantern of sector 2814? If not him who could it be?

Hmmm, I never thought of Pine for the role. I always envisioned Nathan Fillion, of course, or even going a weird way and saying David Boreanaz (considering he played the voice too is pretty funny). But Pine could be a good choice, but it all weighs on Star Trek and how it performs.

But to be honest, the only film I've seen Pine in was Smoking Aces and thought he was fantastic. Considering he wasn't all pretty in it.
