“We’re getting a reputation as a great place to film, from our locations to our ability to work with the companies to the welcoming nature of our community,” says District 2 Commissioner Larry Schlesinger. “I’m excited the film industry is doing more and more work here as it has a direct positive impact on our businesses.”

This filming follows several movies that have filmed in Macon-Bibb, including The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings, Wise Blood, A Trip to Bountiful, The Crazies, Trouble with the Curve, 42, Need For Speed, The Fifth Wave, The Best of Enemies, and Zombieland: Double Tap.
