Ryan Reynolds demanded a rewrite for his new action film ';The Green Lantern,' but not in some diva move. He reasoned with the screenwriters about rewriting the script after realizing an iconic line from the comic book was misquoted.
Reynolds, who stars as the title character superhero in the DC Comics project, was reading the script when he noticed the error in the famous Green Lantern Corps Oath. "I remember when I read… and there's been rewrites and redrafts and sometimes different dialogue is transcribed by people… and somebody wrote it down wrong. Nobody caught it and at the last minute I did."
He immediately stepped in to alert bosses to the mistake – because he knew fans of the original comic book would "murder" them if they got it wrong.
It's true. Die hard fans get insane sometimes. Just look at Twilight.
Reynolds says,"(I told them) ';You CANNOT get the Oath wrong! We had a meeting about this… this is where (the fans) will murder you.' But it was amazing finally saying it for the first time."
At least they eventually got it right.
What would you do if you favorite book adaptation had that big of a mistake in it?
