A host of online rumour sites are reporting that Warner Bros. have sent out an offer to Chris Pine to star in their new superhero flick The Green Lantern. Pine is widely regarded as "the next big thing" in America, with a leading role as Captain James T. Kirk in the new Star Trek film set to see his profile crack the ceiling. Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is already on board to direct the film, which is based around a chap called Hal Jordan, who becomes The Green Lantern after a mysterious ship crashes on earth, and he finds a powerful ring on board. Soon, he's a galactic guardian, handing people their asses all over the shop. Pine has proved he can act with a supporting role in Smokin' Aces, and he's hardly struggling in the looks department, so this could be a winner for Warner Bros. if they do get their man.
