IESB reports that Chris Pine, who plays Captain Kirk in the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Trek film, is favored for the role of Hal Jordan in Warner Bros' “Green Lantern” film. Latino Review is saying that Pine has already been offered the part.
Green Lantern is scheduled for release on December 17, 2010.
