A temporary closure of Georgia’s State Route 46 between Sinkhole Road and Nevils-Groveland Road in Bulloch County won’t be for construction or repairs, but for filming segments of a movie – filming that doesn’t involve the stars.
That a movie starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon is being filmed partly in the Savannah area has been public knowledge for some time. CDC Extras Savannah has been posting casting calls for extras on social media since July 31. The movie reportedly concerns a 1966 real-life effort by a Ford Motor Company design and racing team to beat Ferrari’s cars and drivers in a major European race.
Along with other road and lane closures listed in an email Saturday, the Georgia Department of Transportation District 5 office in Jesup noted that the segment of Route 46 will be closed “for filming productions” this Thursday through the following Thursday, Aug. 30.
