What’s filming in Georgia in May 2022?



“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3″ wrapped production this past month along with 21 other films and TV shows, including Fox’s “The Resident” and Apple TV+’s “Beanie Bubble” movie with Elizabeth Banks and Zach Galifianakis, according to the Georgia film office.

In the meantime, Steve Harvey is back with both ABC’s “Judge Steve Harvey” and “Family Feud” while Star Jones takes over “Divorce Court.” Jeff Daniels stars in a new movie based on the 1998 best-selling Tom Wolfe book “A Man in Full” set in Atlanta. And Anna Pacquin and Colin Hanks are among the stars in a new Peacock crime series “A Friend of the Family,” based on the true story of a seemingly nice man who kidnapped a teen neighbor. Plus, “The Waltons” are back again on the CW, this time with a Thanksgiving special.

The net result: 43 active productions listed by the Georgia film office, down from 56 a month ago but almost identical to the number a year ago (44).

In other words, it’s business as usual in the state.

The Georgia film office provides a live, ever-changing list of active productions, but it is not necessarily complete because production companies voluntarily inform the Georgia film office of what is happening. They are not obligated to do so. And if a company requests the production stay off the list or use a pseudonym, the film office will oblige.

Some of the productions listed by the film office are not using their actual names. The film “Ghosted” starring Chris Evans is being fake-named “Carousel.” The DC Comics title called “Monfongo” is actually “Blue Beetle,” which includes Susan Sarandon. And “Road Trip” is actually action flick “Civil War” starring Kirsten Dunst.
