Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern was originally set to begin filming next January in Australia, however there was recent talk that Warner Bros. would move the production to Mexico as things don’t cost the same as they did a year ago and to continue with the Australia shoot would have added another $20 million to the production costs. Nothing has been confirmed yet, although Ryan Reynolds recently appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and confirmed filming is still on track for a January/February shoot.

Though Reynolds insisted that he had to stay quiet on the details of the upcoming “Green Lantern” adaptation, he did reveal one important bit of information – a rough timetable for filming.
“I’m 4-5 months away from beginning shooting,” Reynolds told Fallon, musing that the consequences of leaking additional information could be severe.
“It’s crazy, it’s the only job I’ve ever had that I’m not allowed to really talk about. I think there’s like a representative from Warner Brothers who I’m sure is following me around ready to blow-dart me if I say a single word,” said Reynolds, “I probably have a chip in me somewhere, like if I start talking about it, I’ll just pass away.”
Though Fallon himself didn’t seem very familiar with the concepts or powers behind Green Lantern, Reynolds was able to set him straight in terms of what the movie would encapsulate.
“A lot of [the film] is sort of like a space epic and some of it is on planet Earth,” said Reynolds, “[Green Lantern] has this ring and he’s been chosen to have this power and the ring can kind of create anything that his will or his imagination can conjure up.”
He also said that at this point playing both Deadpool and Green Lantern “makes you just like an Internet hero, nothing really more than that”.
