Atlanta Film Studios Paulding County Wraps First Feature

By: Gail Smerigan | July 23, 2012

Atlanta Film Studios Paulding County recently wrapped the facility's first production, "42", produced by Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures. The Jackie Robinson biopic written and directed by Brian Helgeland stars Harrison Ford, Chadwick Boseman and Christopher Meloni. Dick Cook and Jason Clark served as Executive Producers and Thomas Tull as Producer. Warner Bros Pictures will also be providing domestic theatrical distribution.

Jeremy Hariton, a partner in RoadTown Enterprises who operate and manage the facility, said, "Welcoming '42' to the Atlanta Film Studios as our inaugural project was a thrill. Just to be associated with this production, which tells such a significant story in our nation's history, is a great way to kick off our operations at the studio....and we could not have asked for a better cast and crew to have at our facility."

Atlanta Film Studios Paulding County is greater Atlanta's newest full service production complex. Opened early 2012, the facility consists of (2) 20 ft. Sound stages, production offices, mill and complete production support on an 11 acre site.

RoadTown Enterprises provides full service consulting for the design, development, construction, operation, management, marketing and sales of motion picture and television production facilities.

"42" opens in theaters on April 12, 2013.
