Exclusive: Though already heavily in the post-production stage, where Sony Imageworks and other CG studios are finalizing effects for the film, the cast and crew are taking part in a few last minute reshoots.
Back on August 7th, 2010, DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns announced that principle photography had wrapped on the upcoming superhero space adventure Green Lantern. Directed by Martin Campbell, the film stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins and Angela Bassett. Scheduled to hit 2D and 3D theaters on June 17th, 2011 -- only six months away -- the men and women behind the scenes are busy putting the finishing touches on the visual FX for the film.
No small task considering the amount of computer graphics going into the project, from the vivid space scenes and plethora of aliens appearing in the film to the Green Lantern suits themselves.
Several days ago we were notified that the Green Lantern movie crew have returned to the sound stages of the Warner Bros lot in Los Angeles for key scene reshoots. At first glance, this may appear to be a knee jerk reflex to the mixed reactions garnered from the film's first trailer and subsequent debate of tone and style by fans. Not so, apparently. After speaking to several sources at the studio, we can report that the current filming taking place in LA is simply standard procedure in an effort to give the filmmakers broader options to include in the movie's theatrical release.
No word yet whether any of the main cast members are a part of the current filming, or how long it will take place for. Either way, it's safe to assume that both Warner Bros and DC Entertainment wish to put out the best possible film for fans and general audiences alike.
