We’re still in the middle of the Hollywood of the South’s slow season, though you might not know it from walking around the city. February may have given us cold, rain, and lately a few glimpses of spring, but it also brought an adornment of yellow filming signs and stars to see. Here’s what we saw this month:
Super Fly (production code: GRAVITATIONAL) continues to be the big production in Atlanta this month. Starring Trevor Jackson, Jason Mitchell, Allen Maldonado, Lex Scott Davis, Andrea Londo, Jacob Ming-Trent, and Omar Chapphro, as well as being led by famed hip-hop music video director Director X, the film is a remake of the blaxploitation classic of the same name. Finishing off January, GRAVITATIONAL signs spotted in Vinnings on the 23rd. We next spotted filming downtown, near Phillips Arena on February 10. A basecamp was set up in Tucker off of Lawrenceville Highway between the 20th and the 23rd. Most recently, Super Fly has been off the Murphy Avenue side of the Metropolitan in Adair Park.
Season two of the Jason Bateman-led Netflix series Ozark (BCP) continued filming into February as well. On the 13th, signs were posted in Roswell at Old Alabama Road and Nesbit Ferry Road. The next day, crews were out at their usual Lake Allatoona spot. On February 20, production moved in town, shooting a residential home in Druid Hills. Three days later, Ozark was spotted in Lawrenceville.
