The movie "42" is filming in Midtown, including a scene at the Biltmore. This exciting photo shows one of the trucks unloading equipment. Rumor had it that President Barack Obama wanted to visit the set of the movie, about Dodgers great Jackie Robinson. He went to the Varsity instead during his fundraising trip to Atlanta on Tuesday.
Right now a sidewalk closing is about the only inconvenience resulting from "42" setting up at the Biltmore. The movie stars Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson and Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey. Ford was spotted entering a Midtown nightclub Monday night. The club was closed at the time; it could have been a filming site
Meanwhile, at the Georgian Terrace, crews readied for a scene in "ID Theft." The movie stars Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman. Bateman has been to the Georgian Terrace before - to film a scene for "The Change-Up," co-starring Ryan Reynolds, a couple of years ago.
Looks like "ID Theft" will film in the bar at the Georgian Terrace. They've hung blackout drapes on the windows. The movie is about a guy who has his identity stolen by a woman. Hilarious!
Movie production usually impacts traffic. This is Ponce at Peachtree in Midtown.
