Movie with Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx to film in Perimeter area next week

“Baby Driver,” whose stars include Kevin Spacey, Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm and Eiza González, will be filming in the Perimeter Mall area, not far from the AJC office, next week. That'll make things super convenient for me but you might want to check details below to see how your commute might be impacted.

The plot, per imdb,: “After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.” Looks like the heist scene is being filmed here next week.

From the production folks:

"The film company, Bambino Films, LLC, will be filming scenes for the upcoming motion picture "Baby Driver" in the Perimeter area.

The filming dates are currently scheduled for Wednesday, 3/16, Thursday, 3/17 and Monday, 3/21, between the hours of 6:00 am and 8:00 pm.

The majority of the activity will be on private property located at the SunTrust Bank building (NOTE: This is actually a former branch location. SunTrust does not own the building and is not involved) on the corner of Perimeter Center West directly across from the Exxon on Ashford Dunwoody.

Throughout those three days, the filming company will be filming scenes of a SIMULATED bank robbery, which will involve fake GUNFIRE and driving stunts on the property.

During the hours of 9:00 am and 11:30 am, on all three - 3/16, 3/17 & 3/21 - the film crew will be temporarily holding traffic on Ashford Dunwoody Rd. between Perimeter Center East/West (McDonald's) and Hammond Dr., to perform driving scenes on Ashford Dunwoody Rd.

Please expect traffic delays during these times. The film company asks that you plan accordingly. The Dunwoody Police Department will be assisting with the traffic management and will be on site for all filming activity.

Bambino Films, LLC will make every effort to minimize the impact on the neighborhood/Perimeter area."
