(Source: examiner.com) With the news yesterday that Green Lantern’s proposed Australian shoot is under threat after the rising Australian dollar has blown out production costs by about $20 million, two questions automatically come to mind.  Does this mean the shoot is off?  Or will it be moved to a different location?

The answers are – the film is definitely going to be shot, but it may not be shot in Australia.  If Warner Bros. and the Australian government don’t come to financial terms, the shoot which is set to begin in two weeks may be moved to the U.S.

Rumors and reports are flooding the internet about where the movie could move its shoot to, with the New Orleans area getting lots of buzz.  /Film reports that director Martin Campbell has been scouting locations in Louisiana, which confirms that the production could move to the U.S.

This means that Warner Bros. has a backup plan.  The down side of this is that filming will no longer begin in two weeks, with the goal now changed to start production by next year.

Will this effect the release date of June 17, 2011?  We’ll have to wait to see.
