Dumb and Dumber filming in Atlanta

For “Dumb and Dumber” fans, the news that a sequel, “Dumb and Dumber To,” is set to premier in 2014 is very exciting. However, the excitement about “Dumb and Dumber To” filming is not limited just to movie fans; residents of Atlanta, GA, and nearby Grantville are enjoying the benefits of this movie being filmed in their neighborhood.

“Dumb and Dumber To” is set to be released in the summer of 2014, 20 years after the release of the original “Dumb and Dumber” back in 1994. The Farrelly brothers, Bobby and Peter, wrote and directed the first film and will be working on the sequel as co-directors and co-producers. Lately, the film industry has been booming around Atlanta and the Farrelly brothers are familiar with the area as well. They shot “Hall Pass” and “The Three Stooges” in Atlanta.

A lot of filming for this movie is taking place in Cabbagetown, which is located on the East side of Atlanta. Making Cabbagetown look like Rhode Island for filming is a big task. The film crew has been hard at work transforming several blocks of Cabbagetown for use in the movie.

Several movies are filming around Atlanta this fall. “Dumb and Dumber To, ” “Mockingay,” the third movie in the “Hunger Games” series, and “Fast and Furious 7” are all currently in the works in the Atlanta, GA area. Local residents seem to be enjoying the excitement and the economic benefits that come along with all of this movie action. Crew members and actors frequent local businesses during filming and locals are hired to work on the sets.

The film industry around Atlanta is taking off, and it is good news for local residents. When “Dumb and Dumber To” hits theaters in 2014, “Dumb and Dumber” and Farrelly brothers fans won’t be the only viewers who are especially excited to see this new movie; residents of Cabbagetown and Grantville will also enjoy a special connection with this film.

The Three Stooges Movie Filmed in Georgia

Posted by Paul Murray on Monday Jun 3, 2013 Under Georgia Film Industry

Three Stooges Movie

The Three Stooges“, released in April of 2012, joins a long list of movies and television shows that were filmed in and around Atlanta, GA in recent years. Beautiful locations, mild weather and the presence of several successful production companies in the area make Atlanta, GA a hot spot for filming, particularly since the implementation of tax incentives for production companies in 2008.

“The Three Stooges” is a slapstick comedy that is based on the Three Stooges shorts that were popular beginning in the 1920’s all the way into the mid-twentieth century. The major difference here is that this movie places the Three Stooges in a modern setting. The main characters, Moe, Larry and Curly, cause all sorts of problems during their years at the orphanage where they were abandoned as babies. By the end of the movie, the trio shockingly find a way to save the orphanage from being shut down. The entire movie is filled with the hilarious antics of Moe, Larry and Curly.

These funny scenes are all filmed right here in Atlanta, Cartersville and Stone Mountain. Shots of the outside of the orphanage were filmed right in Cartersville in a home that was built in the 1850’s. This is not the first time this historic location has been used for filming. The movie “A Simple Twist of Fate” as well as several made-for-TV movies have used this very special historic location for filming.

If you live in or near Stone Mountain and like to frequent the beautiful Stone Mountain Park, you might notice something familiar about the zoo scene in “The Three Stooges”. The film crew worked their magic and transformed part of Stone Mountain Park into a zoo during filming, complete with a lion!

Three Stooges Atlanta

Several scenes were shot in midtown Atlanta as well. There are outdoor scenes that were filmed at Piedmont Park and street scenes filmed around downtown Atlanta. The party scenes from the end of the movie were filmed in a beautiful mansion located in Buckhead, the uptown district of Atlanta.

Whether you are a fan of the old Three Stooges shorts, a fan of slap-stick comedy in general, or you are just curious to see what “The Three Stooges” is all about, give this movie a chance and you will probably find yourself laughing as you watch. The movie features slap-stick type violence and some crude humor, but there is also an overall theme of love and friendship. If you live in one of the filming areas or visit frequently, you will probably enjoy seeing places you know and enjoy visiting in the movie.
