The film industry is booming in Georgia right now and it is not uncommon for locals to see celebrities hanging out at their favorite restaurants or other popular spots around town, mainly because big screen movies such as “Ant Man” and “Captain America” are being filmed right in their backyard.
Pinewood Atlanta Studios is a full-service film and entertainment studio, located in neighboring Fayetteville on 700 acres. The studio has 18 sound stages and is expected to grow even more, according to Brian Cooper, vice president of operations.
