Back in 2016 it was announced that X-Men: First Class writer Zack Stentz had been brought on to write a Booster Gold film for Warner Bros. The project was meant to serve as DCTV super producer Greg Berlanti's directorial debut, but since we haven't heard anything about it for 2 years, most of us assumed it had been scrapped along with many other of DC's cinematic projects.
According to Berlanti, that isn't the case. When asked about the film by The Wrap, whilst promoting his soon to be released film Love, Simon, he had this to say:
It’s still in development with DC. I wrote a draft, they’re trying to figure out both the distance that we still have to travel and how we want to execute it.
He also mentioned that they're currently trying to figure out how the film will fit into the rest of the DC Extended Universe. Despite previously stating that it won't take place within that continuity, it seems plans have changed and it now will.
Also, when asked whether he's still on-board to direct the film, Berlanti said that he's willing to but the decision is ultimately up to the studio:
If the studio is excited — it’s obviously their determination. We finished all the work we need to do on the draft, I would love to do something in that space. I’m still a little clueless on how movies come together. I show up to work every day and make the work as good as I can but then they call me and say, ‘We’re making it!’
The film has seemingly taken the place of the announced Booster Gold/Blue Beetle film which was in development at one stage. Back in 2011, Berlanti attempted to bring the character to life on the small screen as an executive produce alongside former Supergirl and Arrow producer Andrew Kreisberg. An attempt which never made it past the pilot stage.
Would you like to see a Booster Gold movie? Within the DC Extended Universe at that?
