Green Lantern – Filming begins today and Jango Fett to play Abin Sur

Posted by LiveFor on March 15, 2010

There have been test shoots over the past few weeks, but now official filming has begun on the DC Comics film, Green Lantern.

On Location Vacations had the news:

“Green Lantern will be shooting a bar scene at the Old Point Bar, 545 Patterson Drive, New Orleans during the day”

If any readers in New Orleans should get a chance to get over there for some photos then send them my way and I’ll get them on the site.

Heat Vision also have some casting news on the Martin Campbell directed film.

Kiwi filmmaker-actor Taika Waititi (Eagle vs Shark) and Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison (Shortland Street, Once Were Warriors, Barb Wire, Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode 2 and he’s just finished filming Tracker with Ray Winstone).

Waititi plays Thomas Kalmaku the best friend of Hal Jordan. Tom was an engineer working on the planes that Jordan flew. Back before things were better the Inuit character was nicknamed Pie Face (after the Eskimo Pie ice creams), but this has since been changed in the comics. Tom also developed super powers in the comics, that power being the ability to bring out the best of people. I assume that won’t appear in the film.

Morrison is playing Abin Sur. Sur is the Green Lantern who crashes to Earth and upon dying makes Hal Jordan the new Green Lantern.

Shaping up nicely and glad they’ve finally started filming it.

The Daddy is after Jango Fett in Tracker

Posted by LiveFor on October 26, 2009

tracker-winstone-empireprofile-fullAn ex-Boer war guerrilla (Ray Winstone – Sexy Beast, Indiana Jones) in New Zealand is sent out to bring back a Maori (Temuera Morrison – Star Wars, Shortland Street) accused of killing a British soldier. Gradually they grow to know and respect one another but a posse, led by the British Commanding officer, is close behind and his sole intention is to see the Maori hang.

Directed by Ian Sharp this sounds like it could be very cool indeed in a Deadly Pursuit, The Proposition kind of way.
