Sara Rue and Barry Watson in a time-traveler romance

Get your VCRs ready! (do they still make those?) ABC Family is due to debut their latest Atlanta-lensed television movie about a time-traveler from the future who falls in love with a 21st century tabloid writer. “My Future Boyfriend” Sunday night at 8/7 Central! We’re proud to have ABC Family producing these fun little television-ready projects in Georgia (3 in the past 2 years) and we certainly hope that they’ll keep up the pace! We’ve linked to a great video interview of the stars of the film, Sara Rue and Barry Watson (after the break) and (continue reading…)

SCOOP: Young Mummies in Love

by on Apr.01, 2011, under Filming

Poisson d'Avril

In a total scoop for Film Georgia we are pleased to report that a Franco-Egyptian Entertainment Consortium PDA has announced that it is bringing the popular romantic teen drama “Momies Jeunes Dans l’Amour” to American audiences and have selected Georgia as their preferred shooting destination. Originally rumored to be a Tim Burton project, this new series is expected to begin production in early April.

The English translation of the title for the French/Arab project may sound silly to those unfamiliar with the property, but the producers assured members of the media in attendance at the press conference that the show will be just as dark and angsty as the UPN series “Vampire Diaries” or the MTV reboot of “Teen Wolf”.

“Young Mummies in Love” follows the adventures of a group of partially re-animated mummies who are trying to locate a talisman that will complete their rebirth into the 21st century. Part love story, part road trip, part musical, the talented BAFTA-award winning main characters from the original series (Mahmoud Luc D’Orsey, Jenette Louvre-Luvre and Garçon Pietre) will be played by relative unknowns.

Early construction of the signature 200 foot tall pyramid set has already started on the site of the old Atlanta Braves Stadium, previously used as a parking lot by the Atlanta Braves organization. No word yet on what the Braves plan to do for substitute parking, as the completed structure and its surrounds are expected to displace more than 2,200 parking spaces. Anne Louise Berthon, spokesperson for Poisson d’Avril Entertainment, explained at a press conference at the state capital “It eez owah oonderstandeeng zat zee pipples of Hatlanta eenjoy zee scaree critchures, non?”

We hope that you’re as excited as we are here at Film Georgia… vampires, werewolves, zombies and now mummies!!! It’s almost unbelievable, isn’t it??!

(Nos remerciements à la bande “voici les momies” de nous aider dans cette blague du poisson d’avril!)
