ATLwood: Anchorman 2 gives Peachtree an ice rink

Currently Filming

- Anchorman 2 filmed at Piedmont Park on Thursday. Rumor is that Vince Vaughn will be joining the cast soon (for a minor role) ...

- The movie also turned Peachtree Street into Rock Center last weekend, installing a temporary ice rink (here's a blurry shot from Reddit, and a close-up).

- The Brad Pitt-produced The Returned filmed at Sweetwater State Park on Tuesday.

- The pilot "Surgeon General" filmed at the Atlanta Galleria Office Park this week.

- A movie prepped to film in Decatur Cemetery this weekend - any clues on this one?

- Speaking of the dead, check out the latest "Walking Dead" set pics on Walking Dead Locations.

- "The Vampire Diaries" mostly filmed in studio in Decatur this week, though Wednesday it was near Glenridge Drive and Mount Vernon Highway in Sandy Springs.

- "Being Mary Jane" is filming on Nelson Street, with a base camp right around the corner on Mitchell.


Upcoming Filming

- According to ATLwood friend @peachyscoop, Lauren Graham, Joel McHale and Robin Williams will all be in town in April to start filming a new movie.

- And, as Peachy put it, "Man, will it be HOT in the ATL this summer when Jon Hamm comes in town in May to film Million Dollar Arm." Get my smelling salts!

- The thriller Careful What You Wish For will begin shooting in late April in North Carolina, but filming will also take place in Atlanta.

- ATLwood continues to grow - according to a statement by the Georgia Department of Economic Development: "Georgia-lensed productions generated an economic impact of $3.1 billion in the state during the 2012 fiscal year (July 1, 2011 - June 30, 2012), a 29% increase from FY11." So expect more to come! In the meantime, the state has launched a new website to celebrate (and entice visitors).

- Remember that for all of the latest crew and casting info, you can check out the Georgia Help Wanted Hotline.
