Phase I would extend the Green Line to Torrance. A later phase, if ever funded, would continue the line as far as Long Beach | Map via Metro

The Westside Subway may be the popular kid on the block, but let's not forget about possible plans to extend the Green Line deeper into the South Bay. Specifically, Metro is looking to extend the Green Line 4.6 miles from its terminating Redondo Beach station to the proposed Torrance Regional Transit Center.

There are two rail options on the table, as well as looking to beef up bus service in the region and doing nothing (see LAist's previous report on the project for background information).
