New Orleans is the right location to be Macon in ‘Green Book’


In the five-time Oscar nominated movie Green Book, New Orleans, Louisiana becomes, for a cinematic moment or two,  Macon, Georgia.

That’s because New Orleans, Louisiana is the right location to be Macon, Georgia in the movie.

And that’s because as WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood says, a location scout discovered it.

New Orleans has lots of location scouts.

One of them is John Johnston.

John is always walking.  Always talking.  Always taking pictures.  Always looking for the right location.

Wild Bill Wood asks, “are you naturally nosey?”

John Johnston answers, “oh yea, I ask questions.”

John is a Hollywood location scout and manager. John is always searching New Orleans for perfect places.
