That’s Hall Station Road running through the middle area of the map with Park Street and Twin Bridges along the route. Google Map.

 

So what’s the movie? Nothing official but a lot of chatter concerns “Dr. Sleep,” a Stephen King sequel to “The Shining.” The sequel is shooting in the Atlanta area this week after wrapping up  production in coastal Georgia. So far, no call for local extras that we’ve seen.

From Adairsville Police: “Road closures and detours will be in place because of  a film production. Filming will take place Monday, Oct. 8, between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. Access to businesses will be maintained through an officer posted at detours. Officers will divert traffic around the closures. The following road closures and detours will be in place:

  • Hall Station Road from Park Street to West George Street will be closed.
  • King Street from Franklin Street to Hall Station Road will be closed.
  • Twin Bridges Road from Hall Station to Adair Hollow Road will be closed.
  • Plan accordingly and be prepared to avoid these areas.  We understand that this will cause travel delays and inconvenience, so please plan ahead of time and choose your routes early.
  • Traffic to Adairsville Elementary, if coming from Hall Station Road will need to travel from northbound Hall Station Road to Park Street. Adairsville Police will lead traffic to Franklin Street and Railroad Street.
  • From Hall Station Road southbound to West George, then turn right on East George. Will lead traffic to King Street.
  • Traffic coming from Twin Bridges will need to divert to Riverview Drive which will lead you to Ga. 140.

Speaking of movies, the trailer for Clint Eastwood’s The Mule — partially shot in Rome and Floyd County — is now available. It premieres in December. Click below.

Last week, crews for Hank Azaria’s “Brockmire” season three were at State Mutual Stadium for a few days:

Crews were at State Mutual Stadium off the Bypass and Armuchee Connector Oct. 1 to get some footage for season three of “Brockmire.”  The show stars Hank Azaria, Amanda Peet and Tyrel Jackson Williams. The show is broadcast on IFC and the premise is as follows:

“Brockmire (Hank Azaria) is a famed major league baseball announcer who suffers an embarrassing and very public meltdown live on the air after discovering his beloved wife’s serial infidelity. A decade later, Jim Brockmire decides to reclaim his career and love life in a small American rust belt town that has seen better days, calling minor league baseball games for the Morristown Frackers. The struggling team is led by Jules (Amanda Peet), the strong-willed, hard-drinking owner, and Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams), the naïve but enthusiastic team intern.”
