Sorry, Justin Hartley but CW ain’t pickin’ you again for its new live action Green ARROW series. Because Deadline reported that the coveted lead role has gone to The Vampire Diaries‘ actor Stephen Amell as Star City’s vigilante.
This is a modern retelling of the classic DC Character, the pilot is directed by David Nutter. The series is developed by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim (the team behind last year’s Green Lantern film) along with Andrew Kreisberg
Previous casting call described the character Amell would play..
A 27 year old reformed bad boy, who after having spent five years shipwrecked on a tiny, brutally dangerous island in the South China Sea returns to town a different man. Or to be more specific, a tortured, thoughtful master of the bow with a ferocious determination to make a difference.
