The first big series collab between Disney+ and Marvel Studios will begin filming in Atlanta this summer.
Production on “Falcon & The Winter Soldier” (currently under a working title of “Tag Team”) is set to start on Aug. 12, according to movie scoop site DiscussingFilm.
The program, part of Disney's upcoming streaming service to be released next year, plays off the friendship between Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and, well, the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
“Empire” writer and producer Malcolm Spellman has been tapped as screenwriter, and “The Handmaid’s Tale” director Kari Skogland will direct all six episodes of the series, according to Deadline.
The show is just one of many Marvel series coming to Disney+. Keep an eye out for “Loki,” “Wandavision” and “Hawkeye,” too.
