MACON — Netflix will be filming portions of a movie in Macon-Bibb County during the next several weeks.
“Ivan” crew members have already begun prepping areas of Macon, and filming is set to run from July 15 through July 22.
“We’re getting a reputation as a great place to film, from our locations to our ability to work with the companies to the welcoming nature of our community,” said District 2 Commissioner Larry Schlesinger. “I’m excited the film industry is doing more and more work here as it has a direct positive impact on our businesses.”
This filming follows several movies that have filmed in Macon-Bibb, including The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings, Wise Blood, A Trip to Bountiful, The Crazies, Trouble with the Curve, 42, Need For Speed, The Fifth Wave, The Best of Enemies, and Zombieland: Double Tap.
