The Ben Stiller-Vince Vaughn-Adam Sandler sci-fi comedy bromance is filming in several metro Atlanta locations.

This week the project has set up shop in the Echo Mill subdivision in west Cobb county. If you live there, you might soon be (sorta) famous. We hear several residents have been hired as extras.

Next they move to the Amberton subdivision, also in Powder Springs. (A friend’s parents live there and her dad is sprucing up the yard so their famous guests will feel welcomed. Cute.)

We’re told Trinity Chapel on Macland Road is serving as the staging area for all the equipment trucks.

The movie is also filming some scenes intown, in the Inman Park area.

Soon as we get our hands on more photos we’ll post them.

Jennifer: Do you know what is filming today (thurs 10/13) on N. Peachtree Rd. near the 285 ramp?

There is a fake Chinese restaurant building set up called ‘Healthy Tiger” and a ton of trailers, trucks, security, etc.

They’ve been set-up for a couple of weeks. Showed up and “remodeled’ and then we noticed a high security perimeter. Today, they had off-duty police controlling the scene. We haven’t seen any stars yet and the people on sight won’t talk to you.

I live in the Alexan off Jackson street and they have a filming location set up there also! This is so exciting. I’m going to go over there today and see what I can find out.

My office is just down the street from the “Healthy Tiger” set ….. and all my co-worker got so excited thinking we were getting a new chinese/sushi restaurant. Now I’m even more excited thinking I might get to see ‘Ben Stiller’ at lunch! lol

I live right across Macland from the staging area. Do you know if they need any more extras?

Okay, here’s the scoop!! #1 I should be the ” Buzz” reporter. I’ve lived here longer and have much better connections. Now, on to the real story. The movie being filmed(as we type/speak) is ‘Us and Them’ . Bette, Billy and Marisa are all on set. Police will be closing N. Peachtree as needed for the rest of the night…Trying to get photos of stars. Can easily take outside pics(boring).

A film was being done on Hwy 278 in Dallas Ga. My daughter saw an action scene being filmed with a truck up on a dolly with film crews around the truck and traffic stopped on that side of the road. I have no idea what the film was nor who is in it.
