It seems that one superhero film has been shut down by the green... dollar, that is. According to The Hollywood Reporter, production on Green Lantern has been forced to leave Australia, due to the declining value of the American dollar.
It was said that the Australian dollar reached a 27-year high on Friday, which, compared to the falling U.S. dollar, would've added approximately $20 million to the Martin Campbell film's production budget.
"After working closely with our partners at the NSW Film and Television Office (Screen NSW) and examining every scenario, we have decided to move the production of Green Lantern. We are extremely grateful for the assistance we have received from the NSW Government, Fox Studios and the NSW filmmaking community," Warner Bros. said through a statement.
Production on the film was set to start in November and it was reported that it was likely Green Lantern would relocated to either Mexico or Canada.
