Today’s post comes from contributing writer Kenneth R. Wilson, whose story about Olympic hopeful Hoy Thurman is in our July issue. You can read more from Wilson on his blog, The Adventures of Jorge O’Malley.
Today is the last day of shooting in Atlanta for the movie Five Killers, starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. Distributed by Lionsgate Films and scheduled for release next year, the action-comedy tells the story of an assassin (Kutcher) who quits the business after meeting the girl of his dreams (Heigl). Once married, the lovebirds discover that five assassins are contracted to kill them.
Since filming began, the website ic5k.com has gathered and presented Twitter tweets from director Robert Luketic and Kutcher. Apparently, Luketic is a fan of La Grotta on Peachtree Road. He praised the restaurant on several occasions, and in one tweet he declares, “Just had the best Italian food of my 10 years in the US. And I had it in Atlanta Georgia. Im @ la grotta on peachtree. Run, dont walk.”
The site also features a “Where is Ashton?” page that uses Google maps to show where Kutcher is at any given moment. As of 2:45 p.m. today, the site shows him on Memorial Drive in the Capitol Homes area if you are interested in checking it out.
