Ben's here for "The Accountant," a thriller about a numbers guy who cooks the books for shady clients. It has filmed in Roswell and downtown recently. I haven't heard of any off-set star sightings.

Last time Ben was in town it was for his wife Jennifer Garner's movie, "The Odd Life of Timothy Green." At the time they brought their kids and popped up at a few family friendly spots around town.

De Niro is here for "Dirty Grandpa," although I keep hearing the name will change between now and the time it hits theaters (fingers crossed).

Also starring Zac Efron, it's about a young guy who takes his lewd ole pops on the road to Florida for spring break. It has filmed in numerous Cobb County locations including the Marietta Square and the Delkwood Grill.
