Green Lantern to Shoot in Mexico?

Inside Film is reporting that Warner Bros. may shoot Green Lantern in Mexico because of the rising Australian dollar. Here’s a clip:

Warner Bros is understood to be preparing to shift its Green Lantern production to Mexico from Australia, where the booming currency has blown out costs.

The latest proposal overrides recent plans to shift the film to the US state of Louisiana (as reported in the October issue of INSIDEFILM) although a final decision has yet to be made.

If the shoot does proceed at Fox Studios Australia it would add more than $US20 million to production costs due to the rising dollar, according to sources.
