Ansel Elgort plays the getaway driver in "Baby Driver," filming now in Atlanta, and he's been in a very busy driver's seat today.
The movie also starring starring Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily James, Jon Bernthal and Eiza González, is filming at a former bank branch on Ashford Dunwoody Road near Perimeter Mall today. Production folks have warned of possible traffic delays as a result.

The movie is about a crime boss’ young getaway driver (Elgort's character) who finds himself embroiled in a doomed heist. The bank robbery at “Perimeter Trust,” the fictional financial institution the movie folks created, ends in a shoot-out. Here's a short clip of the simulated firefight this morning:
Dunwoody Police officers are providing security and traffic management. Chief Billy Grogan said via Twitter that the road won’t be shut down entirely but that traffic would be held intermittently for a few minutes at a time from about 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. during days of production.
Things wrap here at "Perimeter Trust" on Monday.
