Move over, Hollywood. Atlanta is becoming a major film mecca


Dressed in heavy winter clothes, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Kate McKinnon and Oliva Munn are sitting inside a family van on a snowy city street at night. They’re filming a scene for “Office Christmas Party,” due out in early December. The film, which is about an epic holiday bash after the CEO (Aniston) tries to close the branch, is set in Chicago in December, but the production is a world away, both from a geographical and calendrical sense. Filming is actually taking place in the heart of Atlanta in the middle of summer.

“We chose Atlanta because they have a terrific crew base and multiple sound stage options to accommodate the size of our office set,” said producer Scott Stuber. “Overall, it’s a great place to work.”
