Movie production and directional signs for “Star Wars 7″ have been popping up all over Atlanta but, before you get out your favorite Princess Leia costume and head down to Georgia, here are few reasons why we’re pretty sure it isn’t actually Star Wars: Episode 7.

- The signs – spotted along Moreland Avenue N, Freedom Parkway, on Highland pointing towards Ponce Ave, on Ponce Ave and around Little Five Points – actually say “Star Wars 7″, we’re pretty sure they wouldn’t advertise it so blatantly if they were filming secret scenes in Atlanta.

- It’s been confirmed Star Wars: Episode 7 is still filming in the UK. It is common for a movie to have a second unit at a second location but having a main unit in London and having a small second unit randomly show up in Atlanta seems a little far-fetched.

One of our readers, Cory, spotted more zip line stunts being filmed for Insurgent in downtown Atlanta Saturday night (6/21).

The videos below were taken from the Westin Peachtree where a total of 6 people (3 each from 2 different downtown buildings) could be seen zip lining to the rooftop and then running into a white tent. Gunfire could also be heard during filming that took place overnight.

Thanks to two of our readers, Garrett and @Appltre, we have more photos from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay set at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta this weekend.

The actors came down on ropes from 57th floor of the hotel. You can see some of the roping system in these photos, along with some of the signage that was set up around the set.

OLV Film List

I am often asked general filming questions like, “What’s filming in NYC right now?”, Who stars in ‘Run All Night’?, or “What production uses C4 signs”? So, for the past few weeks I’ve been working on a database that will, hopefully, answer all of these questions in one place.

The database includes all movies and primetime TV series filming in the U.S. and Canada, which city each is filming in, who stars in it, what it is (TV show or Movie), how long it will be filming, and what code they use on filming permits, no parking signs, directional crew signs, etc.

mockingjay

Thanks to one of our readers we’ve learned more about the next filming location for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 near Atlanta.

Crews have been prepping for a shoot at the Pullman Yard in Kirkwood – where scenes were also shot for Catching Fire – since Sept. 17. The movie’s telltale C4 production signs are posted around the property and they appear to be constructing a set inside one of the buildings on the property.
