Happy Wednesday. Here are some middle-of-the-week news and notes for you.

Keep your eyes peeled for Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Kevin Kline and Mary Steenburgen. They’re here filming “Last Vegas,” a CBS Films project due for a Christmas 2013 release.

Mr. Freeman posed for this nice picture that the Dunwoody Police Department just posted on its Facebook page with this caption: “Actor Morgan Freeman took a quick break to thank Dunwwody Officers for their assistance while he was in town filming ‘Last Vegas.’”

“Parental Guidance,” which filmed here last year, is coming out this Christmas. The movie stars Bette Midler and Billy Crystal along with Marisa Tomei and Bailee Madison. Looks like it will be cute.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is here filming the cop movie “Ten,” hit Midtown on Tuesday. He had lunch at Cucina Asellina and then checked out the “Fast Forward: Modern Moments 1913-2013” exhibition at the High Museum of Art.

“Ride Along,” with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, is filming at the Gold Dome this week. It previously filmed at Underground Atlanta and the Gold Room.

Lifetime’s movie about Anna Nicole Smith filmed a restaurant scene at Chops on Monday and is filming a NASCAR scene in Hampton at the Atlanta Motor Speedway today.

Bravo’s new show “The Kandi Factory,” a spinoff featuring “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Kandi Burruss, tapes at 6 p.m. Monday at Opera nightclub. Want to go? (You must be at least 18). See this website and click on “submissions” then “audience.” It’s a nonpaying gig but you’ll get to watch the show. Exciting!

I saw actor Jeffrey Wright at MJQ Concourse on Ponce de Leon 2 weeks ago. I heard someone say he was in town filming Hunger Games.

I think it is Marisa Tomei, not Melissa. Would have e-mailed but couldn’t find your address.
