It seems that an upcoming movie has affected today's traffic in the greater New Orleans area. NOLA.com is reporting that a road is being closed in Madisonville, Louisiana for test shoots of the upcoming film Green Lantern.

"A section of Lake Road in Madisonville will be closed intermittently on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon, as a film crew prepares to shoot scenes for a movie.

Although filming for Green Lantern has not yet begun, crews from Warner Bros. will be on location to run tests with a stunt car, according to Bill Doyle, supervising location manager.

The closure will be in the vicinity of the high bridge on Lake Road between Louisiana 22 and Lake Pontchartrain, according to news release from the state highway department."

Martin Campbell is directing Green Lantern, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins, Mark Strong, and is set for a June 17, 2011 release date.
