Green Lantern Grabs Gossip Girl

Warner Bros and director Martin (Casino Royale) Campbell have finally found their female lead for Green Lantern. Blake Lively, star of US comedy drama Gossip Girl and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel, is set to play Carol Ferris, the romantic interest for Lantern's alter ego Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds).

According to The Hollywood Reporter , "Ferris is the one who hires hot-shot test pilot Hal Jordan to her father's aerospace company, which she's running, before he gets the ring to become Earth's Green Lantern… [in the comics] Carol ultimately becomes the villain Star Sapphire, although there's no word whether there might be some hint of that in the first movie."
