Bassett Going “Green!”

25 03 2010

One of Hollywood’s most unappreciated jewels, Angela Bassett is getting in on the comic book adapation craze by landing a role in the upcoming film, “Green Lantern,” currently shooting in New Orleans.

Directed by Martin Campbell, Bassett will play Dr. Amanda Waller, a government agent who’s a staple of the DC Comics series. There’s a good chance that she’s being introduced to set-up the proposed Suicide Squad movie announced last year.

Bassett will be joining a cast that includes Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins, Mark Strong, Taika Waititi and Temuera Morrison.

“Green Lantern” is scheduled for a June 17, 2011 release.
