According to the blokes over at Latino Review, one of these five women are currently in contention to join Ryan Reynolds as the female lead in the upcoming big-budget space action extravaganza known as “Green Lantern”. LR doesn’t know who it is exactly, though they speculate it could be the little lady coming out of “Basterds” on just “heat” alone. Here are the candidates to play Ferris, described as “the daughter of aerospace mogul Carl Ferris. She works for her dad’s company FERRIS AIR, got an MBA, and has a lifetime crush on Hal Jordan.”
Former Bond girl Eva Green. Personally I don’t see it; she’s French, right? Can she even do an American accent? Of course, they could go with her if they wanted exotic.
Diane Kruger of “Inglourious Basterds”. LR’s pick, coming off of “Basterds”. I’m not sure she “matches” Ryan Reynolds, or belongs in a “comic book movie”.
Keri Russell of “Mission Impossible 3″. She would be a good choice for the spunky, pretty lead, but her career is pretty much cold as a fish right now. Then again, the movie will sell itself, right?
Jennifer Garner of “Daredevil” and “Elektra”. She would also make a good choice, but like Kruger, not sure if she “matches” up with Reynolds, look and “feel” wise. Plus, Carol Ferris isn’t an action heroine, so no need for Garner’s physicality.
And the girl I think who’ll land the gig — Blake Lively of TV’s “Gossip Girl”. Her career’s pretty smoking right now, and she’ll probably cost much less than all the other woman listed above. And did I mention she’s smoking?
So who do you think should play Green Lantern’s Carol Ferris in the upcoming movie?
