ATLwood: What do Justin Bieber and Ryan Gosling have in common?


Programming note: This is my last week on the ATLwood beat, y'all. It's been a wonderful 18 months; at this point, there are almost too many productions and their attendant celebrities to keep track of. I followed in the footsteps of the industrious, omnivorous Allison Keene. And now someone will follow me.

Filming Updates:
>> The Nice Guys has been filming at the Sandy Springs home of producer Dallas Austin, once occupied by Justin Bieber, per Jennifer Brett, and at Akers Mill near Cumberland Mall. Its base camp is reportedly at Galleria.

>> The 5th Wave, under the production name "Sheldrake," reportedly filmed around Emory and in Druid Hills.

>> "Constantine" reportedly filmed near Peachtree and Lanier in Brookhaven and at Oglethorpe University.

>> Ant-Man will be filming at Broad and Luckie Streets next week, starting Nov. 12, per a notice sent around the neighborhood. (Turns out, the film's Pym Industries is actually the archives building.)

>> USA's "Complications" has been filming on Marietta Street and in Douglasville and Kirkwood.

>> Chloë Grace Moretz, Nina Dobrev, and Slash join a long list of celebs (Jennifer Lawrence, T.I., and on and on) who like to get scared at Netherworld.

>> Lil Jon flew back in town ... to vote. Or, rather: “6AM FLIGHT TO ATL TO VOTE BECAUSE GA NEVA SENT MY BALLOT AFTER NUMEROUS CALLS!!!” he wrote.

>> Charles Barkley went to Flywheel in Midtown.

>> Ludacris will not be in the next "Celebrity Apprentice," but former "Cosby" star Keshia Knight Pulliam and "Real Housewife" Kenya Moore will be.

>> The Old Atlanta Prison Farm keeps showing up in movies. Here's why.

>> Julie McGeeJohn Rocker's girlfriend — just quit "Survivor," weeks after Rocker was booted. “I was depleted in every facet,” she says.

This is not the Jim Gordon we know — but isn't he fun? The seventh episode of "Gotham" last night ended with Gordon busting into the halls of power, guns blazing, out of justice...and then his harebrained scheme was shortly thwarted by his fiancée's harebrained scheme.
