2018 has been a crazy year for Georgia’s film industry and we can’t wait to see where the next one will take us. But before that happens, we’ve got one more month of yellow signs, basecamps, and film sets. Here’s what closed out the year in Atlanta:
Our only new production for this month, Undercover Brother 2, is a follow up to the 2002 comedy starring Eddie Griffin, Denise Richards, Dave Chappelle, and Neil Patrick Harris. Unfortunately, it does not appear as though any of those actors are attached to the sequel. We saw Undercover Brother 2 filming in Marietta on November 29, in downtown Atlanta on December 3, and in West Midtown filming a fight scene on December 14.
Rose Byrne, Salma Hayek, and Tiffany Haddish returned this month, continuing on Limited Partners (production code: M&M / R+F). The comedy started December in downtown Atlanta, shooting there between the 1st and 3rd. After that, a basecamp was spotted near SunTrust Park in Cobb County. Signs were spotted along Buford Highway and North Druid Hills Road leading to a basecamp in Brookhaven on December 13. The next day, on the 14th, crews returned to the Cumberland area for filming. On December 17, production was back in downtown Atlanta, and crews filmed near Mercedes-Benz Stadium on December 20.
