I Love You, and What To Expect When You're Expecting, because today brings news that Alcon Entertainment is working on bringing in Michael Green for a rewrite. Green recently did new drafts for Spielberg's indefinitely postponed Robopocalypse and the Moses film Gods and Kings, and assuming this writer Michael Green is the same as this one, he's dishearteningly one of several guys credited on Green Lantern. Plot details for the film aren't known, but Harrison Ford is not expected to return. So there goes the theory Green will just be adding in variations of "I'm gettin' too old for this runnin' shit."
