Good Monday morning! How about a few film tidbits as you wring out.
First, “The Fast and the Furious V,” starring Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock”Johnson, is wrapping things up. In fact they have one more scene to shoot, out in Conyers, and they’ll zoom on out of here.
Cast and crew members including Tyrese Gibson, Paul Walker, Sung Kang and director Justin Lin got together Saturday night for a private wrap party at Straits on Juniper Street. Restaurateur Ludacris was there, too.
Next, “Wanderlust” wandered east this weekend. Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd and gang took their show on the road for some filming in Monroe. So if you happened to be day tripping this weekend and wondered what the ruckus over in Monroe was all about..mystery solved. They’ll be shooting some in Lawrenceville this week.
We hear the “Footloose” remake, which has done a good bit of filming in Acworth along with scenes at the New Senoia Raceway and the Cowboys nightclub in Kennesaw, had to scotch a day of filming today in Fayette County, due to the strong storms.
Star Julianne Hough and her fella Ryan Seacrest have been spotted here and there during the project. They had lunch at Twist on Saturday and later dropped by Star Provisions for some white truffles. They must like to cook. They were spotted in the Midtown Publix the other day, too.
By the way Ryan will be the special emcee for the upcoming Ronald McDonald House Charities event, which is coming up Nov. 6 at the World of Coke. Wonder if he will bring Julianne?
Finally, we hear Nina Dobrev, who plays both Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce on the CW’s Vampire Diaries, was in the audience of The Atlanta Ballet’s season opener, “Moulin Rouge The Ballet,” on Saturday night.
Alright that’s it for now. Stay dry!
