'Green Lantern' Extras in Harahan
NEW ORLEANS — Over 100 extras gathered to watch Green Lantern at the AMC Elmwood Palace 20 in Harahan, La Saturday June 18.
The group was comprised of background talent who worked several months on the film shot in New Orleans in the summer of 2010.
The event was organized by one of the background talent, Michael Arnona, who had planned several other events during the shooting.
During shooting there were many talks among the extras that when the film came out they would arrange to see it together, said Arnona
“As the date approached no one else took the initiative so I went ahead and started planning it,” said Arnona.
He was surprised by just how large the response was, said Arnona.
There were in total over 3000 extras during the New Orleans filming, said Robin Batherson, of Batherson casting who came to show her support.
“I had a great group of people that were with us as extras and they are going to come with me to the next movie as well,” said Batherson.
