The feature film ‘Ant-Man’ is getting ready to start filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
The feature film is currently on schedule to be the first major motion picture to use the new state of the art studio in Fayetteville, Georgia just minutes away from the heart of Atlanta.
Pinewood’s studio is a 288 acre site consisting of five sound stages totalling 100,000 square feet and 300,00 square feet of production office and workshop space.
It was first reported that the film was to be filmed in the UK, but that was cancelled due the high number of other projects filming in the UK. But, it is also hard to deny the tax incentive program in Georgia.
Georgia’s incentives include a 20% tax-credit, and an additional 10% available for productions including a promotional Georgia logo in the end credits. (Not a bad deal for any production company).
Paul Rudd has recently been cast as the star in the feature film. He is scheduled to play Scott Lang, with Michael Douglas portray the scientist Henry “Hank” Pym.
Recently, President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige commented on the upcoming Ant-Man feature film:
“With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves.”
