Green Arrow coming to the big screen?

Now here's an interest story. It is about the long talked about Green Arrow movie, but not like you'd expect...

Accordingly to The Hollywood Reporter, David Goyer, who said in February that he was no longer involved in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming The Flash, is jumping back into the DC Comics universe for Warners with a new project titled Super Max.

The film, which Goyer revealed Saturday on the WizardUniverse.com site, will be built around the Green Arrow, who is tossed into a maximum security prison for super-villains when he is wrongly convicted of a crime.

The project is based on an original idea by Justin Marks, who is writing the screenplay.

Within 10 minutes of entering the prison, the Green Arrow will be stripped of his identity, Goyer told the site. "They shave his goatee and they take his costume and send him to prison for life, and he has to escape. It's like 'Alcatraz,' and he has to team up with, in some cases, some of the very same villains he is responsible for incarcerating in order to get out and clear his name. Of course, tons of people try to kill him while he's in there. We've populated the prison with all sorts of B and C villains from the DC Universe."

Goyer, who co-wrote Warners' Batman Begins, has directed The Invisible.
