ATLwood: 'Ant-Man' starts filming here next month

Filming Updates:
>> Ant-Man will begin filming here next month (Aug. 18, to be exact). According to previous reports, including ours, the film will shoot mainly inside the massive Pinewood Studios, though there are rumors of location scouts fanning out around the perimeter. Keep scrolling for some Paul Rudd news.

>> Jennifer Brett is reporting that MTV's "Finding Carter" has been filming at a former hospital facility in Dallas, Ga, while USA's "Satisfaction" shot a night club scene somewhere unknown on Wednesday. Bolden! about the eponymous musician, starring Jackie Earle Haley and Omari Hardwick, has been filming at the Goat Farm.

>> Ride Along 2, following its successor's smash success, has started production here. It filmed at a "downtown parking garage," early this week, according to reports. 55 Park Place, to be exact. Random Olivia Munn break!

>> HBO's Bessie is down in Rutledge.

>> "The Walking Dead" filmed around Gilmer and Courtland Streets earlier this week before moving back to Griffin.

>> Goosebumps — or, rather, some "cars that are being driven by stunt-people" — filmed in Hall, Forsyth, and Jackson counties.

>> Paul Rudd, like the rest of us, has a job — presently as the star of Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man. So, of course he was out Wednesday in the Peachtree City area for an advance screening of Guardians of the Galaxy.

>> Lady Gaga was in Atlanta last weekend?? For a private concert??? For Microsoft????

>> Got the "Ivy League look"? Divergent needs you, maybe. (Spoiler: It means you'll kind of be playing a baddie.) Email photos and info to with "Ivy League type" in the subject line.

>> Former Fulton County ADA Andi Dorfman surprised no one when she chose former pro baseball player Josh Murray in this week's "Bachelorette" finale. More non-surprises: the couple plans on taking the other one out to Piedmont Park and wants to live in Buckhead. And, "Josh loves to eat!” Just go ahead and read Gwynedd Stuart's recap why don't you.

>> The first official Mockingjay trailer is out and there is almost no Atlanta in it, but there is an insane amount of people pleadingly staring Jennifer Lawrence.

>> Here's what Djimon Hounsou has to say about his role in the upcoming Fast & Furious 7: “I play a mercenary who feels like he has lost something he has to retrieve and those Fast & Furious boys have.” Side note: He thinks Atlanta is "so green!"

>> A quick round-up of two celebrity comics (and one chef) who'll be appearing in Atlanta: Jon Lovitz and Sasheer Zamata will both be in town this weekend, at Atlanta Improv and the Laughing Skull, respectively; homegrown chef G. Garvin will be the Buckhead Theatre on Aug. 7.
