Last April, casting directors were hold casting calls in Atlanta for background actors, stand-ins and even college students for the new Baby Driver movie. Now with production over, Edgar Wright’s Atlanta-filmed production finally hits theaters. But what was it like to film in the ATL?
It is important to note Baby Driver centers around a young getaway driver who suffered a childhood injury leading him to move to the rhythm of a personal music playlist. The setting of the movie takes place and focuses on streets of Atlanta, an important aspect the movie’s director wanted to highlight.However, when the movie was just a script, Baby Driver was originally going to shoot in Los Angeles.
Baby Driver’s film supervising location manager, Douglas Dresser, told KFTV that the movie was originally written for Los Angeles but due to Georgia’s film tax credits it was changed to Atlanta.
