G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA

Actress Sienna Miller talked to Sci Fi Wire about working on the Stephen Sommers-helmed toy-to-film project. "I had never done a huge studio movie like 'G.I. Joe,'" Miller said, "and I felt like it was time to do something where I wasn't having a breakdown or addicted to heroin or dying at the end, something that was just maybe really great fun and that people went to see and actually just had a great time seeing and weren't left damaged. I think my parents also [felt] like, 'Please, just stop doing these films. You're killing us.'"

Starring Ray Park and Marlon Wayans, release date: August 7, 2009.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

GREEN LANTERN

Producer Donald DeLine told Latino Review, "It is definitely going as much as anything is in the movie business right now. We’re in pre-production. We have Martin Campbell directing it. We have our production designer and costume designer. We’re heading off to Australia to scout next week. It’s on the release calendar. I feel like we’d have to do something really wrong to stop it from happening. But I think we’re absolutely going to keep it on the track."

He told Superhero Hype that his Hal Jordan would be in his "late '20s, early '30s," and, "Our story is the Hal Jordan origin story, but creating the character of Hal Jordan that is a real character that will resonate with the fanbase is what we need to do. You have to make him credible and somebody to care about and tell a good story, and I think if we do that, we'll be okay. It's going to be a series of big stakes and big action, but it absolutely has a sense of humor. I think people accept real life, even with really serious situations, with humor as part of that situation, as we experience in life, you have to have that. That's how people cope, so they've done it so well in these other movies. I think that people are absolutely ready. It doesn't have to fall on one side of the fence vs. the other."

Release date: December 17, 2010.
