I'm never one to spread rumors, but ever since news broke that Greg Berlanti and Zack Stentz were working on a Booster Gold movie, rumor is about all we've had to talk about.
The skinny from David James of WeGotThisCovered.com is that
"[S]ome upcoming DCEU movies may skip theaters and premiere on HBO Max. The big name we're hearing is that Booster Gold could be the first feature film release for the service."
In case you hadn't already heard, Warner Bros will jump into the
greedy proprietary streaming service game in May 2020. The service will stream content from across Warner Bros properties, both pre-existing and newly created. Berlanti has already announced two DC-themed shows.
As a result of that announcement, it seems a safe bet that the days are numbered for Warner Bros' existing DC Universe streaming service. We already know that at least some of its content (specifically Doom Patrol) will be moving to HBO Max. Therefore, if a Booster Gold movie is ever going to happen, it seems logical to assume that will be showing up at HBO Max, too.
Of course, that's all speculation. Like I said: rumors are about all we have to talk about when it comes to Booster Gold: The Movie.

Revenge Of The Fans plans to release a new Fanboy podcast today, and their guest will be screenwriter Zack Stentz. They asked Stentz about the state of his Booster Gold movie script:
I do not know what's going on with it right now, honestly. And I don’t know if the DC people know what’s going on with it. Their strategy seems to change depending on how […] most recent movie did. But I can tell you that a script has been turned in that the director and producer, Greg Berlanti, has proclaimed himself to be very happy with. And it’s something that's ready to go, but DC and Warner Bros. would need to give the greenlight to it. The ball is in their court.
We've been following the progress of Stentz's script since he took the job back in 2016. I'm glad to hear that his boss, Arrow and Flash producer Greg Berlanti, is happy with it. Maybe one day Warner Bros will be, too.

Remember the Booster Gold movie script that Zack Stentz wrote for Greg Berlanti back in 2016? Back in August, I wrote "If I were to venture a guess, I'd say it's not dead yet, just moving really, really slowly." It looks like I'm a good guesser.
Earlier this week, Hollywood screenwriter Zack Stentz tweeted about scripts that he has sold but that have not (as of yet) been produced into movies. Among the list was Booster Gold. That triggered this exchange:
Can we trust that source? According to gvnation.com, "Daniel is well known for breaking several DC scoops," so he has that going for him. But in case that's not strong enough evidence itself, let's go straight to the horse's mouth:
There you go. Booster Gold The Movie is still an "active project" at Warner Bros. Personally, I'm willing to be patient if it means they're going to do our hero right.

Last week's announcement about Henry Cavill's departure from future DC Comics movies sent a lot of websites scrambling to re-report what we all thought we knew about Warner Bros' big screen plans.
Some of those sites, like DenOfGeek.com (which ran an updated repost) had Greg Berlanti's Booster Gold on their list, whereas io9.com added our hero as an editorial afterthought, and Movieweb.com ignored Booster altogether.
Of course, it *has* been a long time since we've gotten any real update on the progress of that venture. Last month, screenwriter Zack Stentz seemed to imply it was dead (or at least his involvement in it is). So let's test the mood of Booster Gold fandom on this.

As seen recently on Twitter:
Hmm. All of his projects since 2011 are "dead"? Yet Stentz "liked" the reply comment about Booster Gold? What does that mean for his Booster Gold screenplay?
In case you were unaware, Zack Stentz is the writer of the Booster Gold movie script commissioned in 2016 by and delivered in 2017 to Flash producer Greg Berlanti. Berlanti announced as recently as May 2018 that he wants to direct it.
Despite all that good news, Booster Gold: The Movie has never received any official announcement through Warner Bros, the parent company of DC Comics and the studio behind every DC movie to date. And today's tweet from the screenwriter implies that if the script isn't dead, it's at least being rewritten.
So what's the takeaway here?
If I were to venture a guess, I'd say it's not dead yet, just moving really, really slowly. Given that the upcoming DC Universe streaming service is going to need lots of new content to justify the $8/month subscription cost — which is why Berlanti has lately been working on Titans and Stargirl television series — it seems likely that any Berlanti-helmed Booster Gold project still working its way through channels would also have that destination in mind. Because that streaming service doesn't exist yet (beta testing has been announced to start sometime this month), it may be some time before Stentz's Booster Gold script, or any other, makes it into production.
And, of course, if Warner Bros does decide they want to move ahead with a Booster Gold movie for the big screen, The Hollywood Reporter speculates that Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is available, assuming he wants to helm a movie about a celebrity looking for redemption for past misdeeds.
To know for sure if or when we might ever see Stentz's script or any Booster Gold project become a reality, we'd need a Time Sphere. Since that's even less likely than seeing a Booster Gold movie, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what we see.
