ATLwood: Paul Wesley of 'The Vampire Diaries' Talks About Atlanta

I was robbed! WAS IT YOU?!

  • I was robbed! WAS IT YOU?!


Paul Wesley, who stars in The CW series "The Vampire Diaries" (which films in Atlanta!) was recently on Jay Leno's show talking about the heat and crazy weather in our fair city, as well as how he was almost robbed after filming one day (welcome to ATL... ): Part 1 and Part 2 of the interview.

— Midtown Patch had an article this week that asked whether being "Hollywood South" is a gain ... or a pain? "Atlanta is home to more and more film and TV crews on our city's streets, and Patch wants to know if all this glamor is worth the trouble." What do you think?

— The independent documentary Troubled Waters (which was filmed across North Carolina, Georgia, and Argentina) will premiere at the Dixie Film Festival in Athens next week. The film centers on a water crisis in San Antonio de Los Cobres, Argentina and follows one man’s journey to provide clean drinking water for the entire Andean town of 6,000 people. It features the Georgia-based company, AdEdge Technologies, and was filmed partially in the Metro area. (When I first read the name I thought it was going to be about the Georgia-Alabama-Florida water wars, which WOULD be a good idea if it's not been done already).


The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire filmed at 3130 Slaton Drive this week, wrapping up production there today. They also spent some time at the Swan House.

‎‏— "The Vampire Diaries" has been filming in the Old Town Center of Conyers, near Conyers Pavillion.

Scary Movie 5, featuring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, is currently filming at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre (or as "The Walking Dead" calls it, the CDC).
