Atlanta’s booming film industry has brought a flurry of A-list stars to Buckhead recently. Ryan Gosling, who is filming the ‘70’s noir “The Nice Guys” with Russell Crowe was spotted out enjoying dinner at the Buckhead Diner last weekend. They have been filming all over town including the retro fabulous Sandy Springs home of Dallas Austin (where Justin Beiber stayed while he worked on a recording project earlier this year).
Marvel is filming “Ant-man” downtown in mid-November, superhero fans! The film is starring Paul Rudd as a man who can change sizes and communicate with insects. And speaking of superheroes, former superheroine and Cartersville native Chloe Moretz (who was Hit Girl in the film “Kick Ass”) is filming “The Fifth Wave” on location in Ansley Park.
And for fans of ‘80’s comedy, Ed Helms of “The Office” is back in his hometown of Atlanta doing a sequel to the Griswald’s “Vacation” to Wally World. He’s playing the role of a grown-up Rusty Griswald with Christina Applegate cast as his wife. I hear that while their roles will be small, both Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will be making an appearance. They’ve been filming around Midtown and in Charlotte NC.
It sounds like there will be more of this in our area as Tyler Perry Studios expands with its purchase of property in the decommissioned Ft MacPherson and Jim Jacoby builds the huge Atlanta Media Campus and Studios in Gwinnett, slated to be the largest movie complex outside of California.
If you’re looking for a little of the “lights, camera, action” yourself, here’s a casting call I recently heard about: Looking for wealthy philanthropists, business owners and CEOs for an inspirational, uplifting primetime hour-long series for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The ideal families should live in the Atlanta area, have at least one 7-12-year-old child and would be able to assist another family in need. If you have everything in life money can buy and feel like giving back to a hard working family who had their run of bad luck, please apply here: http://www.nbc.com/casting#htohl
Break a leg, y’all!
It looks like Justin isn’t ready to commit. According to TMZ, he has decided to rent for three months until he finds that perfect location. Like I said, I didn’t believe the other rumor since that house is so close to the street, but this house, the craziest house in quasi Buckhead (more Sandy Springs than Buckhead), makes sense. His temporary Atlanta home is that of record producer Dallas Austin. The four bedroom 5,500 sq. ft. home resembles a spaceship.
If he wants my opinion, he should just pay the big bucks and buy Tyler Perry’s estate on Paces Ferry Road for $28M. It has the security and privacy he needs, and is such a good location with easy access to I-75 to get intown and go to the airport. This estate would require a lot of upkeep and maintenance with the fabulous grounds and gardens and it comes with quite a hefty tax bill which was reduced in 2012 to $285,000 but was as high as $397,771 in 2010, though, so I guess his search continues… I use to have a listing in Ball Ground that has studio already built in, would definitely give him privacy too. I’ll have to think more about what will fit the bill.
UPDATE 2/24/2014 Bieber tweeted that he never even looked at this home. There was even a stunt by morning DJ’s that has been published to make fun of the whole thing. Anyway, he’s here in a rental but this is NOT going to be his house. Great publicity for the agent and great exposure for the house is all that really came out of the rumor.
Atlanta is home to many celebrities, and it looks like another one might be heading our way.
Justin Bieber has been looking to make Atlanta his home so he can be closer to the thriving hip hop community. According to TMZ, he has his eye on a sprawling estate off Blackland Road in Buckhead. Listed at $10,950,000, this 16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedroom/13 bathroom home has a lot to offer from energy efficient geothermal HVAC systems to a 70 foot pool/spa, gym, elevator and much, much more.
It is yet to be seen whether he really is interested or if this is just a way to generate interest in this property. According to his published interests – can’t be visible from the street (preferably secluded on 5+ acres), minimum of 10,000+ sq. ft., and lists for between $4 and $10 mil., this may not be the home for him. While the price and size may suit him, we’ll have to see whether he will settle for less acreage; the lot is listed at less than two acres.
