Coming Soon

  • Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to start shooting  in Atlanta in April.
  • Ben Affleck’s new film The Accountant is scheduled to shoot in the state.
  • Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy Michelle Darnell will film in Georgia and is currently hiring crew members! (Judging by the description the movie sounds a lot like a hilarious take on Martha Stewart’s legal troubles)

Currently in Production

  • The 5th Wave was filming a block from the Georgia Aquarium this week as well as in Macon.


  • Complications was spotted filming in Clayton County
