Filming photos: Ryan Gosling/Russell Crowe in Stone Mountain, Paul Rudd in Atlanta

Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe continued filming their movie "The Nice Guys" with a stop in Stone Mountain this week as the Paul Rudd-Michael Douglas movie "Ant-Man" has been in downtown Atlanta.

"Ant-Man" is the latest Marvel superhero project. It's based out of the huge new Pinewood facility in Fayette County but has been filming in numerous locations throughout metro Atlanta.

If you were driving around downtown this week and got held up due to road closures or filming gear, this might be why.

"The Nice Guys" is set in 1970s Los Angeles and concerns a private detective's investigation into a mysterious death.

The project recently filmed at the retro-fabulous home of producer Dallas Austin in the Sandy Springs area.

Ryan and his groovy new mustache stopped by the Buckhead Diner the other night and posed for this nice photo with members of the staff.

Russell on the other hand dined at Chops and was, we're told by someone who was there, "abrupt" with members of the staff. Ah, well.

On the bright side he did boost the local economy by enjoying a $900 bottle of wine, the Penfolds Grange Bin '95, and paid in cash with a nice tip tossed on top, we're told by a source who happened to be there that night.
