ATLwood: The city is about to be 'Taken'

Filming Updates:
- Sorry for the headline: The third installment in Liam Neeson's action franchise will start filming here on April 24. Forest Whitaker joins the cast.
- Term Life filmed on Trinity Street S.W., Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, and Northside Drive. Random Jon Favreau break!
- "Rectify," which usually films in Griffin, shot in the city this week.
- The Octavia Spencer-starrer "Red Band Society," a TV movie for Fox, also filmed around midtown. Fun fact! The project is being directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who you should remember from every crazy angle on "American Horror Story."
- "Halt and Catch Fire" filmed on Conyers' North Main Street.

Sightings:
- Chris Tucker and Jermaine Dupri ate/drank at the Yeah! Burger on Highland Avenue. Sarah Wayne Callie, formerly of "The Walking Dead," was there as well, per Jennifer Brett.
- Bill Paxton continues his unofficial tour of Buckhead eateries, stopping at the Buckhead Diner.

Castings:
- "How to be an Extra on 'The Originals'"

Deals & Payoffs:
- Andi Dorfman, a Fulton County ADA and the woman America loves for hating Bachelor Juan Pablo, will be the next Bachelorette. (Fun fact! The rumor is that the season will also include Josh Murray, older brother of UGA QB Aaron; this rumor also presupposes that Josh will be a forerunner.)
- Claire Holt, one third of the titular trifecta in The CW's "Vampire Diaries" spin-off, will no longer be a series regular on the show. Officially, Holt can return at any future date for any future story arcs involving her immortal Rebekah Mikaelson. Word is that Holt's leaving was her decision; she'd never been keen on years-long work as an immortal, anyway.
- ABC's "Resurrection", another American spin on France's "Les Revenants" (after Sundance's "The Returned") which filmed in Norcross, debuted to healthy numbers against middling reviews.
- "Archer Vice" lives! (For two more seasons.)

Miscellany:
- "Todd Chrisley, on the new USA reality show 'Chrisley Knows Best,' lives in a palatial 30,000 square foot home in Roswell with kids and wife Julie. He is dubbed 'the patriarch of perfection.'"
- A definitive list of TV shows shot in the city, more or less.
