The latest Disney+ series to be shot at Trilith Studios in Fayetteville is “Armor Wars” which is in pre-production and set to start Oct. 4.

In the series, Tony Stark of “Iron Man” fame discovers that someone has been stealing his technology and selling it to supervillains. Don Cheadle has confirmed he will be in the series, returning as lieutenant colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes.

This series will take over for “Echo,” another Disney+ series which just wrapped at Trilith.

Anne Hathaway will be in Georgia for Amazon film “The Idea of You” as a 40-year-old divorcée who falls for a hot rock star at a music festival.

ABC’s “The Wonder Years” is coming back for a second season while CBS is rebooting the film “True Lies” for a TV series.

Other actors in town right now include Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron shooting Netflix’s “The Family Affair,” Jeff Bridges and Diane Lane in Netflix’s “A Man in Full” and Lil Rel Howery and Ludacris in Disney+’s film “Dashing Through the Snow.”

Overall, TV and film activity seems normal in Georgia, with at least 49 productions in the pre-production or active production. A year ago, the number was 45.

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. I also glean some titles from productionlist.com and other sources. (Georgia does provide an alphabetical directory of every production it has ever kept track of here.)

Some productions listed by the film office are not using their actual names. “Perfect Imprints” is actually the new Disney “Blade” movie. Netflix’s film “Electric State” is using the fake name “Stormwind.” (That latter film stars Millie Bobby Brown and has also cast Stanley Tucci, Michele Yeoh and Jason Alexander.)

“Found,” NBC pilot. More than 600,000 people are reported missing in the U.S. yearly. More than half that number are people of color.
