James Gunn confirms the writers of the Green Lantern TV series that is in development, with Damon Lindelof and Chris Mundy.

News first surfaced about the writers via listings on the writers Guild of America website.

 Gunn has since confirmed on social media.

“Yes, it’s true. The Lanterns DCU series is putting together a crack team of writers, based on a wonderful pilot script and bible by Chris Mundy, Tom King, and Damon Lindelof. A hearty welcome to Chris and @damonlindelof as they join the DC Studios family (no welcome necessary for old @tomking_tk, who has been here nearly since inception),” posted Gunn on Instagram.

Damon Lindelof is known for Lost, Cowboys & Aliens, Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z, Tomorrowland, The Leftovers, Watchmen, recently Mr. Davis, and Lindolf recently exited a Star Wars movie at Lucasfilm.

Chris Mundy is known for Criminal Minds, Low Winter Sun, Ozark, and episodes of True Detective.

What is Lanterns about?

The Lanterns TV series is described as an enormous TV event series that follows intergalactic cops John Stewart and Hal Jordan as they uncover a dark mystery.” No cast has been announced as of yet. Nathan Fillion is playing Green Lantern Guy Gardner in Superman.

“This is the story of a couple of Green Lanterns, John Stewart and Hal Jordan, and we have a few other Lanterns peppered in there,” Gunn previously said about the series.

Gunn also described the show: “This is really a terrestrial-based TV show which is almost like True Detective with a couple of Green Lanterns who are space cops watching over precinct Earth. In it, they discover a terrifying mystery that ties into our larger story of the DCU.”
