Alan Burnett on Green Lantern: First Flight

It's always interesting to see how a script got commissioned. Here's screenwriter Alan Burnett's tale of how Green Lantern: First Flight came into being:
“[Warner Bros. Animation] had been going through some ideas for Green Lantern stories and none of them were quite working out,” said screenwriter Alan Burnett. “So, I just pitched it to them in one line, ‘Have you ever done Green Lantern as Training Day?’ with the idea of the Denzel Washington role being Sinestro. They said, ‘That sounds pretty good — start writing.’ And that’s how it began.”
If only all pitch meetings were like that.

Green Lantern: First Light will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in America in July. No information about a UK release yet.
