Hotlanta is about to triple its hotness.
The Walking Dead Season 5 has been filming in the Atlanta area for the past month, and Norman Reedus’s (Daryl Dixon) new movie Triple Nine is also said to start filming in the city this Monday, June 9.
You may recall reading about the dirty cop heist movie back in April when Norman was announced as part of a very cool cast — including Aaron Paul, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Teresa Palmer, and Gal Gadot, among others. It’s a great lineup.
Here's the extra (literally) cool news for anyone who will be in the ATL this summer. As On Location Vacations reported, "Extras Casting Atlanta is handing extras casting for the movie and has posted several very specific casting calls looking for African American male guards, men who can play FBI agents, strippers, butchers, females who can give manicures, and more. You can see all recent casting calls on Facebook."
We may have to slay you with deep envy if you manage to book a background role in Triple Nine, meet that amazing cast, and also meet TWD cast members in the Senoia/Newnan/Griffin/ATL area. It's too much win for one summer, but if that's what happens to you, congrats! We will just have to seethe from afar.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
