Green Lantern will shoot in Sydney in the fall

Warner Brothers' and DC Comics' next big-budget feature, Green Lantern, will be made at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney, New South Wales premier Nathan Rees announced, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Preproduction on Green Lantern is set to begin in July, and filming scheduled to start in November. Warner hopes to release the film in December 2010.

Martin Campbell, director of Casino Royale, will be at the helm of the comic book's big-screen adaptation, working from a script by Greg Berlanti and Michael Green. Donald Deline will produce, with a reported budget of $150 million.

Green Lantern is the third Warner movie being made in New South Wales. Happy Feet 2 is in development there, and Guardians of Ga'Hoole is now in production by Animal Logic.
