For those of you who might not know it, the state of Georgia has a very large and robust film industry. Outside of New York and California it is one of the largest film production states in the country. Going all the way back to the 1970's the Georgia Film Commission has given incentives to film here in Ga and the result has been a ton of revenue and jobs. All of Burt Reynolds "good" movies were made in Ga. Deliverance, Smokey and the Bandit, The Longest Yard, Sharkey's Machine, and Cannonball Run are all Ga movies. Some recent movies filmed here entirely or in part here that you may or may not have heard of include The Blind side, Zombieland, Hall Pass, and The Change Up,Madea Goes to Jail, Fireproof, We Are Marshall, Stomp the Yard, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Driving Miss Daisy, The Gospel, Sweet Home Alabama, The Fighting Temptations, and Forrest Gump.

So with all the film activity it seems there are just about always movie crews somewhere. But it is still a big deal when Hollywood comes to our little corner of the world right here in Powder Springs! Neighborhood Watch, a new movie starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and others is currently filming in and around Powder Springs. Of course for a movie titled Neighborhood Watch they need a neighborhood and in true Hollywood fashion there are actually using 3 neighborhoods that I have previously blogged about as the setting for the film.
Echo Mill, Amberton, and Oakleigh are all very nice neighborhoods here in the area. All 3 have very nice swim and tennis facilities as well as other amenities likes parks and trails.
Between the 3 neighborhoods prices range from the low 200's to high 500's
