THR is confirming what everyone already knew: “Green Lantern” is not filming in Australia due to the falling U.S. dollar. Last Friday, the Australian dollar hit a 27-year high against the U.S. dollar, and Australia is not alone, as the dollar is falling against every other countries currency. What this means is…”Green Lantern” will likely film in the United States in whatever area gives the production the biggest tax incentive. But I should mention THR is saying it’ll probably film in Mexico or Canada.
Ultimately, this change in location shouldn’t matter to fans. The movie is still being shot next year and it’ll hit theaters in June 2011. The only thing that’ll change is where the spy pictures are taken.
