In brightest day, in blackest night, we turn to James Bond's director to get the Green Lantern movie in front of everyone's sight. Martin Campbell is in talks to direct DC Comics' superhero's cinematic debut.

Campbell - whose Casino Royale relaunched the Bond franchise in fine style - recently finished directing the Mel Gibson-starring big screen remake of British TV drama Edge of Darkness, easing him from the action thriller world of Bond into the more fantastic science-fiction necessary to make Green Lantern work on-screen. If he accepts the position, Campbell will be replacing Greg Berlanti, who co-wrote the script with Marc Guggenheim and Heroes' Michael Green, with the movie being talked about for a summer 2011 release.
