Atlanta actors, listen up! Stay in the loop about what’s currently filming in your fair city (and projects that may just need an extra or two) with our weekly roundup.

Things are juicy this week with Peach City Queen Kenya Moore of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” shooting a PSA. Though her casting was last week, there may still be a chance to partake. Keep an eye on her Instagram for evolving information.

The Jennifer Lopez-judged dance show, “World of Dance,” will hold auditions in Atlanta in September. The NBC competition is seeking talent as young as eight, so send over your video submissions electronically!

Kevin Hart’s “Night School” is set to shoot in our fine city and is crewing up now. They are even looking for multiple late model cars for background. Looks like casting director Kim Coleman is running the show (previous work includes “American Crime,” “Dear White People,” and “Dope”) and is filling quite a few featured roles.

Tom Hardy will star in the Spider-Man spin-off “Venom,” which will shoot in both Atlanta and New York in September. No information on casting principals or extras yet but when we know, you'll know!
