So, I see the new movie "Sabotage" is filmed in Atlanta, but is the movie setting going to be Atlanta? Does anyone know? Or is it going to be passed off for some other city, or some made up city?

Based on the Southern accent of one of the characters, I'm guessing it will be set in Atlanta. Plus, using most of our famous architecture (and maybe even Centennial Park, since I passed by the set when they were filming at the erstwhile New Era Store near there), it would be hard to pass it off as another city. The movies that have (Endless Love, My Super Psycho Sweet 16) tend to show the skyline far, far in the distance, and at night to hide the fact that it was shot here.

Apparently, the film is loosely based on the book And Then There Were None. While the filming might have been in Atlanta, if the plotting is like And Then There Were None, the majority of the movie will be inside one house.

Here's a fuller synopsis of the movie...so...mostly in a cartel safe house with some flashback or resolution scenes outside of it?

Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world's deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done - until, one-by-one, the team members mysteriously start to be eliminated. As the body count rises, everyone is a suspect.

I kind of hope it doesn't take place in Atlanta. That storyline doesn't really put us in the best light. It didn't for LA in the past either.

What I really don't understand is why was Anchorman 2 shot in Atlanta, but the storyline took place in NYC.

CNN started right here in Atlanta; There is no reason their storyline couldn't have taken place right here.

I'm okay with it being shot here and having the story set somewhere else. That happens with movies all the time.

The Shining looks like it was made in the rockies but it was actually filmed in a studio in London.

They don't hide any of Atlanta's landmarks or the skyline in this trailer so I assume it is set in Atlanta.

Based on the trailer, it looks like it's going to be good.
