DC's Green Lantern series uses Damon Lindelof and Chris Mundy as writers

Damon Lindelof (“Lost,” “Watchmen”) and Chris Mundy (“Ozark”) have joined DC’s upcoming Green Lantern series as writers.

James Gunn, co-CEO of DC Studios, confirmed the news Instagram Saturday, writing: ‘Yes, it’s true. The DCU series ‘Lanterns’ assembles a top team of writers, based on a beautiful pilot script and bible by Chris Mundy, Tom King and Damon Lindelof.”

Lindelof is known as co-creator and showrunner of the science fiction series “Lost,” which ran on ABC from 2004 to 2010, and the 2019 HBO limited series “Watchmen.” He was also co-creator and showrunner of the HBO supernatural series ‘The Leftovers’.

Mundy was showrunner on the Netflix series ‘Ozark’ from 2017 to 2022. He was executive producer of series such as ‘Criminal Minds’, ‘Cold Case’, ‘Bloodline’ and ‘True Detective’ season 4.

In January of last year, Gunn and DC Studios co-head Peter Safran announced the Green Lantern series, titled “Lanterns,” as one of the first ten film and TV titles within the rebooted DC universe. Safran described the series at the time as “a huge HBO-quality event” that is “very much in the vein of ‘True Detective’.”

“Lanterns” will focus on two of the best-known members of the Green Lantern Corps: Hal Jordan (the test pilot first played on-screen by Ryan Reynolds in 2011’s “Green Lantern”) and John Stewart (an ex- Marine and one of DC’s first black superheroes), investigating a mystery that Safran said “plays a really big role and leads us into the main story that we tell in our film and television.”

The project is separate from a Green Lantern series developed by Greg Berlanti for Max, starring Finn Wittrock and Jeremy Scott as Guy Gardner and Alan Scott, respectively. Berlanti’s Green Lantern series at Max is no longer moving forward.
