If you haven’t heard or if you haven’t driven around metro-Atlanta and seen random yellow signs with random lettering, then you don’t know that we have become Hollywood of the South. Though, I’m sure most of you are already aware! From movie sets on Peachtree Battle to celeb sightings on the Beltline, it’s hard to miss the explosion of the entertainment industry in our great city! What’s filming around town these days, you ask? See below for a few!
-American Soul on BET. Featuring one of our favorite Destiny’s Child gals, Kelly Rowland! American Soul is a drama that tells the story of the popular show Soul Train. Filming has taken place in Kirkwood and Buckhead (Pullman Yard and Bitsy Grant Tennis Center, to be exact)!
-MacGyver on CBS. If you want to watch somebody save a life with a couple toothpicks and a battery, then this is your show. Filmed in various parts of the metro area, like Loganville and Midtown, this classic reboot is currently shooting for its 3rd season. I even had a past client tell me that they received a letter alerting them that filming would take place on their street in Brookhaven. How cool is that? If you see yellow says that read “EYE”, you know you are close to set!
-Marvel’s Avengers. Now, this is a BIG one! They took over Midtown (specifically, Woodruff Arts Center) back in October for some pretty action-packed scenes. Keep your eyes peeled for super heroes roaming the streets
-Bad Boys for Life with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence has received the green light from Sony and is set to be hitting theaters in 2020. No news on when and where filming will take place, but keep your eyes peeled for those two funny dudes.
We love that Hollywood has put their mark on Atlanta. The opportunities and growth that come with it are exciting for this city that we all love. And if you want to move closer to the action (or further away from it), give The Peters Company a call!
