Green Lantern – Jackie Earle Haley will be Sinestro?

Posted by LiveFor on January 15, 2010

Back in October 2009 it was rumoured that Jackie Earle Haley (“Watchmen,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street”) would play the villain Sinestro in the upcoming Green Lantern film. This was denied by the actor at the time.

Now HitFix reports that Haley remains the only choice for Sinestro by the studio and he’s in the film. In the first film Sinestro will only have a brief appearance apparantly – a short role that will expand into a fully-fledged villain in a further sequel down the track. This does make sense as in the comic book Sinestro was the Green Lantern who trained Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) in the way of the Ring!

Peter Saarsgard will probably play the main villain of the piece, the dangerous telepath Hector Hammond whose contact with an alien force threatens Earth’s security.

Drew McWeeney mentions that they have also managed to get the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott and Emerald Dawn’s Legion in to the plot.

How do you feel about Rorschach playing Sinestro? I still have a niggling doubt that he will be Sinestro but that’s just me.
