It’s a new year, which means new movies and television programs filming in Atlanta. While we’re still in the slower part of the year, there’s no shortage of projects filming around the city. Here’s what we saw to start off 2020:
New this month, Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Gal Gadot are in town for Red Notice (KARATE DOLPHIN). This curiously coded film, an action-comedy, revolves around an Interpol agent tracking the world’s most wanted art thief. We first saw Red Notice in Stockbridge between January 9 and 12. After that, on the 13th, crews filmed near Conyers. Additional scenes were set up at Atlanta Metro Studios in Union City on January 15. Crews would continue working in the area until the 22nd. On January 25, a scene was shot in Norcross. Most recently, on the 30th, production returned to Union City.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe/Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (TT) continued filming into the new year. Between January 4 and 6, crews worked out of Sweetwater Creek State Park near Douglasville. Overnight on January 11, Krog Street Tunnel was set up for filming. The production was next spotted at Pratt-Pullman Yard in Kirkwood on January 15. Most recently, scenes were filmed in Griffin on January 24. The Falcon and the Winder Solider stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, reprising their MCU roles.
Respect (QOS/RPL), the Aretha Franklin biopic starring Jennifer Hudson filmed in Midtown at the Georgian Terrace between January 8 and 9. Signs were also spotted at North Avenue at the Connector. On January 19, additional scenes were shot in West Midtown. On the 22nd, the film moved up to Duluth, shooting at the Infinite Energy Center. Crews continued to work there on January 24. Most recently, the production has been downtown, filming at the First Congregational Church of Atlanta on January 27. Respect also features Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Mary J. Blige, Tate Donovan, and Tituss Burgess. See more at Atlanta Magazine.
