The movie also starring Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Dave Koechner, Christina Applegate, Harrison Ford, James Marsden and Kristen Wiig has been filming in Atlanta for months now, and has been steadily adding to its roster. (Hey, Will Smith. We see you, Nicole Kidman. Welcome to Atlanta, Liam Neeson. Is that you, Kanye West?)
After filming at Marietta Middle School a couple of weeks ago, the movie spent a week down on the coast, where Ferrell shared a scene with a fake shark off the St. Simons Island Pier. This week, the movie set up shop at Woodruff Park, turning Atlanta into 1970s-era New York City complete with yellow taxis the size of tanks, a poster featuring the late Mayor Ed Koch and a telephone booth. Remember those?
