The pre-production world of The Green Lantern went rather quiet after Ryan Reynolds landed the titular role. No one else has been cast, and the biggest news to follow Reynolds was that the filming had moved from Australia to New Orleans, thanks to the rising Australian currency. But SpoilerTV has landed the open casting sheet which reveals just who we can expect to see alongside the Emerald Knight.

The lead female character will be Carol Ferris, who is described as "26-32, a smart and attractive woman with an MBA. She started as a pilot and now runs Ferris Aircraft. She is a work-a-holic." That's not straying too far from the comics, as Ferris was the Vice President of her father's company, and was responsible for hiring the handsome Hal Jordan. Naturally, they fell in love but things became rather problematic when she became the villainous Star Sapphire. You might just be seeing the origins of a sequel here.

Next up is Dr. Hector Hammond, "27-35, Character actor who is austere and impersonal, he is real "scummy." He is a pathologist and also the son of a Senator." Hammond is definitely getting a movie makeover, as he's just a petty criminal in the books. Being a comic book, he naturally stumbles upon radiation and uses it for his own moneygrubbing ends, and jumps into supervillain status.

Sinestro is a given, since he's assigned to be Hal's mentor once Jordan joins the Green Lantern Corps. But with a name like Sinestro, you know he isn't going to be a gentle Obi-Wan Kenobi type. I won't get into details, but it's amusing to read what his big screen appearence may be: "Mid-30s to Mid-40s, he is smart, tough, intimidating and in great physical shape." (He was based on David Niven! Intelligent, intimidating sure -- but ripped?)
