ATLwood: 'Ant-Man' is hopping across the pond?

Filming Updates:
- Now that their assault on downtown is complete, the Fast & Furious 7 base camp has reportedly moved to DeFoor Avenue and Howell Mill Road. (Random rubble break.) It filmed at Spring and Garnett Streets.
- What is Mockingjay building in Griffin?
- The Game filmed at 10th and Spring.
- Dumb and Dumber To has basically wrapped. The Walking Dead's Laurie Holden was back in Senoia, fighting for her life seeing friends.
- Reportedly, Real Housewives of Atlanta filmed at a Menchie's, for which I can offer no explanation.
- Meanwhile, The Vampire Diaries took a field trip up to midtown, near Atlantic Station.
- According to unnamed sources, Edgar Wright's Ant-Man, a key piece in Marvel's various upcoming "Phases," will film at Atlanta's Pinewood Studios, since London's Pinewood was all booked up. Collider's EIC basically backed this up in a recent tweet, so I wouldn't call it crazy.

Sightings:
- Jennifer Brett has a photo of Liam Hemsworth at The Four Seasons, where every celebrity press junket I have ever been to in Atlanta has ever been held. Oddly, she doesn't say if he's actually staying there; it's hard to even say if he's smiling in the photo.
- Barely Legal's Jessica Alba says, "When in #Atlanta u must eat at #MaryMacsTeaRoom"

Castings:
- F&F needs someone who looks like Jason Statham for a one-day shoot on Monday. Send three pictures + info to Fast7atl@gmail.com with the subject line "Statham Double." (For the record, Statham is described as "5'10″-5'11″, 165-175lbs.")
- Good news, if you're going on Carnival's The Fantastic Journey 2014 cruise, benefiting the Tom Joyner Foundation: Tyler Perry will be sending a casting director to scout for new talent. There's one rule: "You have to audition after you have a few drinks," Perry said.
- AMC's Halt and Catch Fire needs "hard bitten" ladies (and other types of ladies, too). Email a photo + info to hcfextras@gmail.com. Here for more info.

Deals/Payoffs:
- The Georgia film industry generated...a lot of money for FY 2013 (July 2012-June 2013). The Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office measures the "economic impact" of the productions at $3.3 billion, a category elastic enough to include the money going in and out of the local industry's sound stages and crew members. The total actually spent is $933.9 million.
- Sabotage, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and some Atlanta mud and some DEA agents, released its first trailer.

Miscellany:
- RHoA's Kim Zolciak had (or in celebrity journalism parlance "welcomed) twins.
