Day 4

The Green Lantern production crew has truly taken over the Big Easy. Filming has already taken place in over ten locations, with a few more on the horizon. New Orleans' Central Business District isn't immune to production infection either, and was recently used for a scene involving a new character in Green Lantern mythology.

Senator Hammond, portrayed by actor Tim Robbins, is the father of Peter Sarsgaard's Hector Hammond; one of Hal Jordan's tentative villains for the film. The First Bank & Trust building, located at 909 Poydras Street in New Orleans, LA, was used as an impromptu office for Senator Hammond. Filming took place between Tuesday, April 13th, and Wednesday, April 14th, in the penthouse office of the bank building. Through the use of scaffolding, blue screening was rigged over the office widows' exterior to facilitate the crew in inserting a Washington D.C. backdrop during post production.
