The folks working on a film starring Jennifer Garner want to be good neighbors while they’re working – and have alerted residents that the project will temporarily affect traffic near the now-closed Forrest Hills Elementary School in DeKalb County this week.
An advance notice sent out from Green House Pictures, Inc. said “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” will be filming in and around the school from Wednesday to Monday. No filming is planned for the weekend, but trucks and gear will remain in the area, guarded by security.
From the notice:
“We have requested from the DeKalb County authorities permission to temporarily re-route traffic around the Forrest Hills Elementary School, closing Forrest Blvd. between N. Carter Road (south end) and Craigie Avenue at Livingston Place (north end) during the days we are at the school. Green House Pictures, Inc. will also hire off-duty DeKalb County Police officers to assist us with traffic control and security.”
No students will be affected. Forrest Hills closed a few years ago after DeKalb school officials decided it was too small to keep open.
Also from the notice, the film ” is about a 10- year old boy, Timothy Green, (played by C.J. Adams) who mysteriously shows up one day in the small rural town of Stanleyville. Though he is young, small and somewhat “odd,” Timothy Green’s outlook on life injects feelings of hope and thoughts of possibilities into those around him, inspiring the people of Stanleyville to be the individuals they always dreamed of being.”
Garner and Affleck, who are here with their two children, seem to be enjoying the city. She and the kids were spotted at the Atlanta Botanical Garden over the weekend and the couple had dinner with friends at South City Kitchen in Midtown the other day.
