Director: "Mark Strong Will Be Green Lantern's Sinestro"

\Green Lantern director Martin Campbell has debunked rumours that Watchmen actor Jackie Earle Haley will play The Green Lantern's arch nemesis in the big screen adaptation of the DC superhero ("No, that's completely wrong!"). Instead, he tells MTV 's Splash Page , "we're in negotiations with Mark Strong to play Sinestro."

Mark Strong recently appeared as Lord Blackwood in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and soon to be seen in Matthew Vaughn's upcoming Kick-Ass. According to Campbell, "He's not only a wonderful actor, but he looks like Sinestro. If you look up old pictures of Sinestro, he's very like him. The Jackie Earle Haley thing, somebody told me about it this morning; I had never heard it before in my life."
