In a recent article over at Vulture, about Blake Lively and her career, there was a bit where both a Hollywood manager and agent commented when asked about her role in Warner Bros’ Green Lantern. Both are also quick to say that should the forthcoming Green Lantern flop (and it’s been a troubled production), it won’t hurt Lively much.
Says the manager:
“Whatever the mistakes were with Green Lantern, she needs to not react to them and do an indie movie just because a big superhero movie didn’t work. It’s always about the role and the director. The hotter the person, the easier it is, and she’s very hot right now.”
The agent adds:
“Even though Green Lantern is supposed to be terrible, it doesn’t mean it’s not going to do extremely well and enhance her foreign value. Clash of the Titans was horrendous, but it didn’t slow down Sam Worthington any.”
Not sure exactly what to think or react to all of this. I do find it interesting that it is being labelled as a “terrible” movie. We all know that many of the fans are not too happy with the CGI and humor shown in the trailer. Despite that, I still think that the majority can’t wait to see the movie. I am curious as to what caused them to make such a claim. I think they are simply judging from the ET footage that was shown a while back.
Call it however you want. Blake Lively is a beautiful woman, but that’s about it, she was ok in The Town, and I don’t watch Gossip Girl and I’m sure she wouldn’t want too many people actually judging her acting talent off that show. I agree though that if Green Lantern did flop it wouldn’t effect her at all, guess we’ll have to wait and see.
