Damon Lindelof, Chris Mundy to Pen ‘Lanterns’ Series

The project will follow Green Lanterns Hal Jordan and John Stewart in a mystery that will ‘weave back and forth between the films and the television shows’ of the DCU.

Damon Lindelof (Lost, Watchmen) and Chris Mundy (Ozark, True Detective) are set to pen the upcoming DCU Lanterns series. DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn took to Instagram over the weekend to confirm the news.

Gunn revealed, “Yes, it’s true. The Lanterns DCU series is putting together a crack team of writers, based on a wonderful pilot script and bible by Chris Mundy, Tom King, and Damon Lindelof.”

Lanterns, first announced in January of last year, follows Green Lanterns Hal Jordan and John Stewart. Peter Safran previously described the series as “more of a True Detective-type mystery with our two Lanterns. A terrestrial-based mystery” that will, “weave back and forth between the films and the television shows.”
