Slow Down, Zombies at Play

by Nolan R

If you’re stopping by the Decatur Library today or tomorrow, you might have to detour around the zombies.  No, they won’t be at the Library, but just down the street.  The Decatur Metro blog reports that the film Zombieland will be filming a couple of short scenes in downtown Decatur on March 2nd and March 3rd–one at the Hi-Tech gas station on the corner of N. Candler St. and E. Ponce de Leon Ave., and the other at the intersection of N. Candler and Sycamore St.  The section of N. Candler between E. Howard Ave. and Sycamore St. will be closed for approximately 4 hours, according to Sony Pictures.

The Hi-Tech station has been transformed into the Gas N’ Gulp for the filming.  There’s no word on whether or not the film’s stars Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone will be on location for the Decatur scenes.  Most of the filming so far has taken place in Valdosta, GA, and the film is scheduled to be released October 9, 2009.

Frank Darabont’s new miniseries on AMC titled The Walking Dead will be shot in Atlanta. It’s greenlit as a six part miniseries, based on the popular comic book. I cannot find out anything more. Any ideas where they will be shooting?
