Denzel Washington sighting, filming updates

Denzel Washington is here filming a movie called “Flight.” The action-adventure thriller also stars John Goodman, Don Cheadle and Melissa Leo.

The project did some shooting last week in the Sandy Springs-Dunwoody area, at St. Joseph’s Hospital and an apartment complex off Glenridge. This week the movie is filming in Covington.

In his downtime Washington’s been spotted a few times, most recently over the weekend. He and a couple of buddies dined Saturday night at The Tavern at Phipps. We’re told it was a quiet, low-key gathering.

“Flight” sounds like an intriguing film. The screenwriter, John Gatins, recently told MTV News that “It’s an R-rated drama, it’s like a movie from the ’70s that the studios don’t really make anymore.” Here’s a link to that story.

I ran into Denzel at Nordstroms on Sunday. Super nice guy very laid back and pretty much flew under the radar. Nike jump suit, Yankees hat was the ideal attire to remain under the radar. A few folks realized who he was and then everybody merged onto there smart phones to start sending out there tweets and FB updates. Was kinda cool to watch! LOL
