Drew McWeeny over at Hitflix has broke the news that Bradley Cooper is extremely close to becoming The Green Lantern, in the Martin Campbell directed $150 million comic adaptation. Cooper is set to become all kinds of huge with the much buzzed about comedy The Hangover to break him in a big way. He has previously popped up in supporting roles in the likes of Wedding Crashers and He's Just Not That Into You, and also had a regular season role in Alias. Cooper has very much served his time, and judging by the heat surrounding his turn in The Hangover, this could be a very smart move on behalf of the 'Latern' makers. Campbell last directed Casino Royale, and has the Mel Gibson starrer Edge of Darkness awaiting a release.
