NOLA.com is reporting that Warner Bros. Pictures has started test shooting for director Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern today in Madisonville, which is on the other side of Lake Pontchartrain compared to New Orleans:
A section of Lake Road in Madisonville will be closed intermittently on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon, as a film crew prepares to shoot scenes for a movie.
Although filming for “Green Lantern” has not yet begun, crews from Warner Brothers will be on location to run tests with a stunt car, according to Bill Doyle, supervising location manager.
The closure will be in the vicinity of the high bridge on Lake Road between Louisiana 22 and Lake Pontchartrain, according to news release from the state highway department.
Coming to theaters on June 17, 2011, Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins and Mark Strong.
