DC superhero epic Green Lantern doesn't even have a director yet, apart from a rumored Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), but now it has a release date: Dec. 17, 2010. Warner Bros. also announced the final Harry Potter film comes out July 15, 2011. Zack Snyder's next film, Suckerpunch, comes out October 8, 2010. And the eagerly awaited Christopher Nolan film Inception hits the big screen surprisingly soon, on July 16, 2010. (Without knowing anything about Inception, I already feel comfortable saying it's my most keenly anticipated of these films. What about you?) [ERC Box Office]
I just don't undertand how they can have release dates when they have no director, a script that will undoubtedly be re-written, no casting, MAYBE some pre-production. If the release date is more important than the vision and tone, that does not bode well.
