"Green Lantern: Emerald Knights" On the Way

According to World's Finest Online, Warner Brothers Home Video has revealed that "Green Lantern: Emerald Knights" is on their upcoming slate of animated projects. The new animated film was hinted at earlier this month during the Cartoon Network up fronts that also announced the upcoming "Green Lantern" animated series.

The list also included the recently announced Superman/Batman: Apocalypse and confirmed that a Batman: Year One adaptation is in development.

A storyline titled 'Emerald Knights' previously appeared in DC's Green Lantern comic series in 1998. The plot involved Hal Jordan traveling from the past to team up with modern Lantern Kyle Rayner. It is unknown whether the cartoon will be a direct adaptation.

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is expected to coincide with the character's cinematic debut next summer. "Green Lantern: Emerald Knights" is expected to coincide with the summer 2011 release of director Martin Campbell's live action "Green Lantern" adaptation starring Ryan Reynolds, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Blake Lively, Tim Robbins, Angela Bassett, Jon Tenney, Gattlin Griffith and Jenna Craig.
