Share your production signs with the A-Scene! Thanks Joe Powers for getting us Tyson's Run!
The people with Tyson's Run gave the A-Scene amazing access! Be sure to share your celebrity pics and sign spottings.

FCE- Tyson's Run is a movie about an autistic boy's (portrayed by Major Dodson of "The Walking Dead") attempt to re-connect with his father by training for a marathon. Our A-Scene crew found signs and a base camp on Marietta Square two weeks ago, and A-Scene follower Joe Powers shared this photo of a sign he spotted in Fayetteville this week. The film also shot at Pope High School in Marietta this week and invited the A-Scene to tag along! Coverage on that is coming soon!

Share your production signs with the A-Scene! Kineka York-Weeks got this photo for Super Intellegence!

S&K- Our Facebook follower Kineka York-Weeks caught this photo of an S&K sign in early July. Our A-Scene MVP Jake the Intern did some on-the-ground sleuth work in Decatur to uncover that this is the sign code for Melissa McCarthy's new comedy "Super Intelligence"! In the movie, McCarthy plays a woman whose life is turned upside down when she is selected for observation by the world's first superintelligence - a form of artificial intelligence that may or may not take over the world. They’ll be filming a baseball scene Downtown this week, where they needed extras to portray Seattle Mariners fans. They’re also filming in Little 5 Points on Wednesday.

TOGS- "Legacies" is the next installment off of the CW hit "The Vampire Diaries". It is shooting in Conyers and Loganville this week. Val Crisp spotted this TOGS sign in Conyers on Friday the 13th and shared it with our A-Scene Facebook Group. If you're wondering about the code, take a closer look at the name of the last spinoff, The OriGinalS. “Legacies” is scheduled to premiere in October 2018!

HVN- We spotted the Fox X-Men spinoff "The Gifted" shooting around Nelson Street between Chapel and Magnum Streets last week! Casting calls point to the show staying in Atlanta this week. We just got word that the second season will premiere later this year on September 25.

Share any production sign photos with the A-Scene. A-Scene follower Kelsey Warren got us this one of Queen America.

WTM- Thanks to an e-mail tipster, the A-Scene has learned this is the code for the Catherine Zeta-Jones production "Queen America". It is about a ruthless pageant coach who meets her match when she is paired with the beautiful, yet unrefined Samantha. The series was Downtown last week, at the World Congress Center and the Benz, where Kelsey Warren found this sign on Tuesday. They’ll stay in ATL this week as they shoot a funeral scene on Monday. The show will air on Facebook Watch, and is an important part of the social media giant's move into video.

CHOA – We received a few pictures of “CHOA” signs around the area from A-Scene Facebook Group members last week. We’ve learned that Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta was shooting an informational video using that acronym.

SF - The Walking Dead. We’ve come to know that a casting call for men and women to portray zombies or survivors south of Atlanta is pretty much code for “The Walking Dead” is filming. Extras Casting continues to put these calls out as the hit drama films Season 9. Keep your eyes open for production signs in the area marked “SF” for “Stalwart Films”. If you find one, share your photo with theAScene@11alive.com. We'll share them in our A-Scene Facebook group. Look out for the A-Scene’s full story coming this week from our visit to TWD outpost AKA Senoia last week.

McFLY, 1080, BLK45, PCF7 - These are all sign codes used by the Netflix hit “Stranger Things.” Laura Starr Wilson posted about spotting a BLK45 sign off of South Cobb Drive in our group last Tuesday. Production has been steady in a number of locations around Atlanta and casting calls point to more Season 3 shoots around Atlanta this week. A “McFly” production sign was also seen off of Lakewood Way, near EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Atlanta this week. We believe they may be doing some production work there as they’ve used those facilities before. Here's a link to a story and video on Stranger Things transforming Gwinnett Place Mall into a 1980's mall.

Share your production signs with the A-Scene! David Binder thanks for grabbing MacGyver for us!

EYE - “MacGyver,” the CBS reboot of the classic series, started production on Season 3 in Loganville earlier this month before moving to other parts of Atlanta. A-Scene follower David Binder shared this production sign shot with us last week and The A-Scene caught a sign off of Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd last weekend. Casting calls show that they’re shooting an “upscale party scene” in Buckhead on Monday, so keep an eye out for any “EYE” signs in the area this week.

Share your sign photos with the A-Scene! Allen Harwell shared this photo with us.

CROSS EYE – Speaking of CBS reboots, “Dynasty” is filming under the code “CROSS EYE.” The remake follows the same basic premise as the original, two of America’s wealthiest families feuding over their fortune and their families, but with an updated storyline and cast. Season 2 premieres on October 12th.

Share your production signs with the A-Scene! thanks for sharing this one Christy Benton!

TR- The Fox series "The Resident” is back for season two and is getting ready to shoot some medical scenes in Conyers on Monday. After that, they’ll be in Atlanta until Thursday. It also shoots around the High Museum and Woodruff Art's Center sometimes. Thanks Christy Benton for sharing this photo with us.

Share your production signs with the A-Scene! Roneeka Behagen Williams got us the photo from Little with Isa Rae.

GED - Why would we see production signs for a movie that wrapped up shooting months ago and is set to hit theaters on September 28th? We may have the answer. “Night School,” starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish used “GED” production signs while it was filming here in Atlanta. It turns out the same company behind “Night School,” Will Packer Productions, is also producing the upcoming comedy, “Little.” “Little” stars Justin Hartley (This Is Us) and Issa Rae (Insecure). Roneka Behegan Williams shared this sign photo with our A-Scene Facebook Group. We believe the production company is recycling the “GED” sign for this film. Just this weekend, the A-Scene saw some “GED” signs at the Lenox Rd. exit off of GA-400 going North. Help us confirm by sending pictures of any “GED” signs our way, or if you work on the shoot and can confirm!

NTL – We’ve seen a few casting calls for “NTL,” which stands for “Never Too Late.” It’s an independent feature film that’s scheduled to start filming in Atlanta in August. “Never Too Late” follows an independent widow who is forced into an adult community after her kitchen catches on fire. She discovers that the community is a lot like High School, full of cliques, drama and flirting. We aren’t sure what they’ll put on their production signs, but if you see any “NTL” signs, send them our way so we can confirm!

KIKI- The Clint Eastwood-directed movie “The Mule” has made its presence known all over the peach state, filming in Augusta, Jonesboro, McDonough, Rome, Douglasville, Tucker, Norcross, East Atlanta Village and Lawrenceville. "The Mule" also shot in downtown Atlanta in the Fairlie, Forsyth, and Marietta Street area.

Kristin Laffler shared this great photo of Clint Eastwood with the A-Scene. Share your prouction signs and celebrity sighting photos with the A-Scene.

Another A-Scene Facebook group member, Kristen Laffler, caught the above photo of Eastwood in the director's chair while they were in East Atlanta Village. Just recently, we found their basecamp set up at the Cheshire Motor Inn right down the road from A-Scene headquarters! The film is based on the true story of a World War II veteran in his 90s that gets caught smuggling millions of dollars in drugs for the Sinaloa Cartel. Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Peña will join Eastwood.

Share your production signs with the A-Scene! Diane Boushehri caught this photo from Poms.

Sun Springs - This is the code for the movie "Poms". Diane Keaton and Jackie Weaver will star in this unique twist on a cheerleading flick. The comedy is based on the true story of a retirement community that formed a cheerleading squad. They’ve been filming in the Hampton area for the past few weeks and will be shooting in Griffin this week.

Share your sign photos with the A-Scene! Thanks to our member MVP Certified Lee who got this photo and confirmed Star is shooting at this location.

SOS – “SOS” is the code that the FOX series “Star” uses when it films here. We’ve gotten a few reports of “SOS” signs popping back up in Atlanta recently. One of our A-Scene MVP followers, Certified Lee, sent us a sign off of Fulton Industrial Blvd. and then did some detective work to confirm that “Star” was the production filming. The series stars Jude Demorest, Benjamin Bratt, and Queen Latifah. Season 3 premieres on September 26th.

CK, NWH - YouTube has been busy building up their catalog of shows for their streaming service, YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red). Two of those shows are shooting here, and they’ve both been using signs marked “CK.” The YouTube original Cobra Kai is based on the Karate Kid films. We understand it is between production seasons right now. “Now We Here” is a comedy about a rap star and his entourage. The A-Scene captured these pictures from their base camp at the Electric Cowboy nightclub in Kennesaw earlier this month! “Now We Here” is wrapping up production this week after some final shoots in Peachtree City on Monday and Tuesday.

ELIXIR- This is the code for the much-anticipated Dwayne Johnson adventure movie "Jungle Cruise". It's based on the old Disney ride by that name. We've posted several casting calls for it. A lot of the shooting was centered at Blackhall Studios East for the past few weeks, but recent casting calls tell us they’ll be in Atlanta this week to film a scene involving conquistadors and porters.

Share your sign photos with the A-Scene!Thanks to Valerie Bseibess for sharing this photo!

PSI- We've seen signs for this one the past few days. “PSI” was the code previously used by the film, “The Darkest Minds,” filmed in Atlanta last year.

We’ve heard that “PSI” is being used by the film “After” this time around, but we have not confirmed. “After” is a movie where a young woman heads off to college and falls for a bad boy with a dark secret. If you see any “PSI” production signs around, send us a picture to help us confirm!

Raising Dion- We've also seen casting calls for this one. It's a Netflix series about the challenges a single mom faces when she discovers her young son has super powers. It’s filming in Atlanta on Monday.

Black Lightning- The CW superhero series based on the DC comic of the same name will be filming in Decatur for the duration of this week.

Emperor – The Civil War-era historical drama has been shooting in Savannah for a few weeks and they’re set stay there until the end of July. It stars Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) and Dayo Okeniyi (The Hunger Games).

Doctor Sleep – Stephen King’s sequel to “The Shining” is expected to start shooting in Atlanta in September. It continues the story with grown-up Danny Torrance, still dealing with the harrowing aftermath of what went down at the Overlook Hotel in “The Shining.” Mike Flanagan has been tapped to direct the film. He already has experience adapting Stephen King novels into film, as he directed “Gerald’s Game” for Netflix last year.
