What FILMED in Georgia in May 2024?

Updated: 17 hours ago

May 29, 2024


The active Georgia film office list of movies and TV list is at its busiest since November 2022 with 46 projects as summer nears.


That is up slightly from 43 in mid-April.


There is still the specter of a possible strike with IATSE, the union that represents most crew members. The two sides are currently in talks for the next three-year contract, which expires July 31. The uncertainty might slow business in coming weeks.


But in the past six weeks, the state has seen 19 new projects and almost as many wrapping.

The most notable film that began production is the “Naked Gun” remake starring Liam Neeson. Its home base is Electric Owl Studios in Atlanta, which is also where the J.J. Abrams sci-fi movie “Flowervale Street,” starring Anne Hathaway and Ewan McGregor, is still shooting as well. An Amazon Christmas romantic drama film “Oh. What. Fun.” is also in the middle of filming.



Another new dramatic film called “One Spoon of Chocolate” starring Shameik Moore and Paris Jackson is new to town. The feature follows an ex-military convict (Moore) leaving the city for a small town where he ends up finding love, danger and more trouble than he can handle, according to a synopsis from the producers.


Two longtime Bravo reality shows “Married to Medicine” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” are back as well, along with the third season of Starz drama “P-Valley.”


Netflix last week finally wrapped the sixth and final season of “Cobra Kai” with wrap party photos popping up in social media. Other projects that wrapped include the “Saturday Night Live” opening night movie and the second season of ABC’s “Will Trent,” which will be back for a third season in 2025.


The Georgia film office provides an ever-changing list of active productions, but it is not necessarily complete because production companies are not obligated to update the Georgia film office. And if a company requests the production stay off the list or asks to use a pseudonym, the film office will oblige.


For instance, “Stranger Things” is under the pseudonym “Cedar Lodge.” “Superman” is listed as “Genesis.” The Disney film “Thunderbolts” is under the cheeky cereal name “Oops All Berries.” “Moana” is using the fake name “Canon.” “Flowervale Street” is using the name “Neighbors.”
