‘Dumb and Dumber’ sequel to film in Atlanta

The "Dumb and Dumber" sequel, the "Hunger Games" three-quel and the "Fast and Furious" sept-equel (is that a word?) are all filming in Atlanta today.

"Dumb and Dumber To" will be filming in Cabbagetown. We ran by the set as it was being constructed the other day. Here are some photos. We're guessing that all the KEEP OUT signs meant we should scram, but we'll try to run down there again and check things out this week.

"Mockingjay," the third in the "Hunger Games" franchise and "Fast & Furious 7" (SEVEN!) are both filming downtown, in the Georgia Dome/Centennial Olympic Park areas. That should do wonders for traffic. Plan extra time if you need to be in that area of downtown today.

"F&F 7" filmed at Historic Oakland Cemetery last week and has a good bit of OTP work planned. "Mockingjay" is reportedly looking at sites north and south of metro Atlanta. 

So, how about some star sightings? 

"Hunger Games" leading lady Jennifer Lawrence has been spotted in Atlanta a couple of times already. She joined a group including D&D's Jeff Daniels at Watershed the other night and has also been by Del Frisco's. Daniels also was spotted at Stats downtown over the weekend.

F&F star Paul Walker Paul Walker has been spotted at RA Sushi Bar Restaurant and The Real Chow Baby in recent days.

No Liam Hemsworth sightings yet. The last time he was in Atlanta, filming "Catching Fire," he was spotted with co-star Josh Hutcherson at a popular Atlantic Station hangout. Wonder if they'll be back?
