Last night we reported director Martin Campell’s 3D Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan and Mark Strong as Sinestro was starting principle photography today in New Orleans. The first scene being filmed was at a bar called Old Point Bar. But in homage to Green Lantern creator John Broome, the bar was renamed Broome’s Bar. Which is kind of cool.
As you might imagine when a big film is on location, images from the set have already hit the net. So if you’d like to see Ryan Reynolds on the set of Green Lantern, hit the jump. And before you get excited…he wasn’t in costume.
I heard they filmed only two bar scenes. Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, and Jay O. Sanders. Not many people showed up to watch. At the most there were 10 people at once. If I hear of any other locations, I will try to get on top of it.
