Thanks to Onlocationvacations for this info. They have pinpointed where GL will begin filming for tomorrow's shoot.

According to the site:

"Tomorrow is the movie’s first official day on location in NOLA and thanks to one of our tipsters, Jason, we know where they will be. Green Lantern will be shooting a bar scene at the Old Point Bar, 545 Patterson Drive, New Orleans during the day."

Whoever is in New Orleans from CBM, please go get yourself a bear with Hal Jordan and take a picture with him.


Also, CBM user P862010 has found out that Abin Sur and a Test pilot buddy of Hal Jordan have been cast. Thank you to P862010 for finding the news and thank you HollywoodReporter for notifying the fans of the growing GL casting.

This from the THR website:

"Kiwi filmmaker-actor Taika Waititi, pictured, and Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison, best known as Jango Fett from the "Star Wars" movies, have joined the cast of Warner Bros. "Green Lantern."

Star Wars invading GL, what a coincidence.

"Waititi plays the best friend of Hal Jordan, the test pilot who comes to wear the super-powered ring of the interplanetary police force known as the Green Lantern Corps."

"Morrison is playing Abin Sur, a member of the Corps who is instrumental in Jordan becoming the superhero."

Seems that the newly cast actors impressed Martin Campbell and Warner Bros.
I can't wait for 2011 and some set pics:)

Additionally, loyal CBM reader "kenny" has sent us this info and pic...

My wife and I heard a rumor that a local bar was closing from the 12th to the 17th for filming of the Green Lantern movie, so today we decided to check it out and they changed all the windows to read "Broome's Bar" in the middle of the window and "Food & spirits" at the bottom. Gonna try to get some pics.

Here are some pictures we took that night. Stopped by today but everything was covered up. Gonna try again later. This is from the "Old Point Bar" which is in Algiers Point, in New Orleans on the west Bank. If i get anymore, i'll send them your way. -- Kenny

Thanks Kenny! And anyone else who is in that locale who will provide insider information. Send it in!

"Bar scene"

Secret Origin, anyone?
charbelelnasr - 3/14/2010, 8:46 PM
So other than Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Tim Robbins, and,Mark Strong who are the remaining cast for the movie.
RedDevil - 3/14/2010, 8:47 PM
BTW I'm sorry for the constant name changes for my user account I just can't choose lol. I went from NovaPrime, Punish8r to DudeOlympus and Gr8Valkyrie. But who cares.

@TylerTrust
Yup reminds me of Secret Origins as well. Maybe they might mix some elements with Emerald Dawn and Secret Origins, but that is unlikely jus my superstition.
RedDevil - 3/14/2010, 8:50 PM
@charbelelnasr

I'm sure they have cast everyone already. They will most likely reveal who Kilowag, Abin Sur, The Guardians, Tomar, and others in this coming week.
JLanphear - 3/14/2010, 9:12 PM
@InTylerWeTrust82 God I hope so. I liked Emerald Dawn, but Secret Origin was a work of genius. Anything they take from it will be great. Plus, John Stewart is in that bar scene. Lets get some Common up in this movie! :D

SO EXCITED! Get some pictures guys and gals. We need Ninjas.
JoshWilding - 3/14/2010, 9:24 PM
I stick with Marvel so I'm no expert on this character but I really hope that Mark Strong doesnt look like the image above - it looks camp as hell, lol! :P

supermarioworldE - 3/14/2010, 9:43 PM

RedDevil - 3/14/2010, 10:08 PM

ub3r - 3/14/2010, 11:35 PM

WarNoodle - 3/15/2010, 12:14 AM

NERO - 3/15/2010, 12:23 AM
Aw, man. Peter Graves died.




eleven11 - 3/15/2010, 1:10 AM
yar maybe a cameo of john stewart where hal n john got into a fight in the bar. if they're going for the secret origins setup
NERO - 3/15/2010, 1:38 AM
I'm just hoping we see some set photos of Reynolds in the costume, I'm curious what route they're taking; stretch or rubberized. I hate the rubber super suits.
IronClad - 3/15/2010, 1:50 AM
why would anyone want to get a "bear" w/anyone? i'd much rather have a beer w/Green Lantern than a "bear". haha couldn't leave that one alone.
IronClad - 3/15/2010, 1:51 AM
i have to agree w/gtrman on this one.
luv1138 - 3/15/2010, 2:06 AM
@IronClad

hahahahaha. That was funny as hell!
LEEE777 - 3/15/2010, 3:38 AM
Um.............

Bradley Cooper is Guy Gardner!!!!

; D
LuckyKyd - 3/15/2010, 3:57 AM
Yes were clear for take off :D...

I really hope that they are throwing some Secret Origin in the mix, but as I remember there was a bar-scene in Emerald Dawn as well, just before Hal Jordan drives into the sign and injures his friend.
But I guess he could still brawl with Stewart though, cause that would be SWEET!!!
LEEE777 - 3/15/2010, 5:13 AM
Nicholsy @ And...

GUY GARDNER = BRADLEY COOPER!!! : P

slimybug - 3/15/2010, 5:23 AM
Okay, so, the best buddy in question is obviously Tom Kamalku.
charbelelnasr - 3/15/2010, 5:29 AM
So the remaining cast are:
-The Guardians of the Universe
-Tomas Re
-Killowag
-Hal Jordan's Father
-Carol Farris's Father
DaenerysTargaryen - 3/15/2010, 6:01 AM
I can't believe filming has possibly already begun. I guess they are filming the Earth scenes first. :)
MrSuperheromoviefan - 3/15/2010, 6:05 AM
Great.
JoshWilding - 3/15/2010, 6:35 AM
Guys, check out my GHOST RIDER Fan Cast!!! Just click the link!!!
RedDevil - 3/15/2010, 6:48 AM
Awesome Kenny. Keep rollin with those pics, atleast get a pic of Hal Jordan:) No need for the entire scene lol want to save that for the film.
comicb00kguy - 3/15/2010, 7:32 AM
They're shooting close to my buddy's work on Friday. Plan to grab my camera and see if I can catch any pics of anything.
comicb00kguy - 3/15/2010, 7:36 AM
Also, gotta say I'm saddened to hear that Peter Graves died. I was a big fan of Mission Impossible as a kid. I know I've seen him in a lot of things over the years, and always enjoyed his performances.

claybo4131 - 3/15/2010, 8:11 AM
What they need to do is recast Blake Lively out of the movie, plain and simple, I cant beleive people think she will be good in this, I have flashbacks of Kate Bosworth as Lois written all over this.
AvengingAngel1022 - 3/15/2010, 1:14 PM
cool
Spectre94 - 3/15/2010, 4:22 PM
Temuera Morrison as Abin Sur. Sweeeeeeeet.....
abw2 - 3/15/2010, 6:47 PM



Filming, yeah, great, Martin, get back to me when you start spitting out trailers.



commicgal - 9/2/2010, 9:48 PM
