It seems that the new "Green Lantern" movie, starring Ryan Reynolds, is running into a little bit of a budget issue over in Australia...
Warner Bros. is understood to be negotiating with the [New South Wales] State Government to receive a higher level of concessions in an effort to claw back between $15 and $25 million in value eroded by the currency gains.
The value of the Australian dollar has climbed by more than 16 per cent since the State Labor government announced the deal to film at Fox Studios in mid-April. The big-budget Hollywood blockbuster was expected to create around 500 local jobs, including 100 performers and 200 crew.
If they have to cut costs, I suppose they could always give Ryan a smaller costume.
I don't think anyone would really mind.
