what got me thinking about movies being filmed here is the fact that they are filming scenes for the new X-Men First Class movie in Jekyll Island ive heard they are blowing up the convention center(was set to be demolished to build the new one) for the movie and they are using the Jekyll Island hotel as a mansion for the movie... http://chronicle.augusta.com/latest-new ... yll-island

It's always pretty cool seeing places you know on TV or in movies. I grew up on Long Island where countless movies and shows were also filmed. My homes have never been in movies but because of our close distance to the Hamptons, I had met quite a few famous folks. Tom Hanks was the biggest star I had ever spoken too.

I used to live in Brunswick. My dad and cousins used to go over to Jekyll Island and swim in Rockefeller's pool. Of course they had to jump the fence first.

That was mostly a South Carolina movie. Most of it was filmed on the Chauga River. Only a few scenes are from GA, like Tallulah Gorge.

"Fried Green Tomatoes" was filmed in Senoia, Julliet, and Coffee Bluff Plantation. The barbeque from the movie is still there, as it was, in the rear of the Whistle Stop Cafe. Senoia is currently filming movies and t.v. shows, and the signage is frequently changed on various businesses to accomodate filming. "Zombieland" in downtown Newnan and the Fulton County Parkway. "Footloose 2" at the Senoia racetrack(neighbor in as an extra). All the "House of Payne" stuff in Atlanta.

I was an extra in "Invasion USA" when they were shooting in the Atlanta area. My car got more camera time (and more pay) than I did, because it had Florida tags on it.
