Green Lantern filming in Sydney, shooting begins in November April 16th, 2009

Update: Ear­lier today we men­tioned the con­firmed Syd­ney film­ing loca­tion for the Green Lantern movie adap­ta­tion. THR have divulged a lit­tle more infor­ma­tion, reveal­ing that the project will have an esti­mated $150m budget.

We’d pre­vi­ously com­mented on the Aus­tralian film­ing loca­tion and scout­ing reports in and around Syd­ney and New South Wales, but today The Aus­tralian con­firms the spe­cific Syd­ney locale. Shoot­ing is expected to begin in Novem­ber and is expected to take six to nine months, this start date is slightly later than the pre­vi­ously reported mid-September. Pre-production shall begin in July.

THE big-budget movie adap­ta­tion of comic super­hero Green Lantern will be filmed in Syd­ney, with pro­duc­tion to begin later this year.

The movie, pro­duced by DC Comics and Warner Broth­ers, will be directed by Mar­tin Camp­bell, the man behind the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale.

It is expected to cre­ate around 500 jobs in NSW with pre-production to start in July and film­ing to begin in Novem­ber at Sydney’s Fox Studios.

The film­ing is expected to take six to nine months.

“Bring­ing Green Lantern to NSW is a major coup,” Pre­mier Nathan Rees said when mak­ing the announce­ment at Fox Stu­dios today.

“Films such as this invest heav­ily in the local econ­omy and the flow-on effects for local ser­vices such as trans­port, con­struc­tion and the hotel industry.”
