‘Insurgent’ filming zip line scenes in downtown Atlanta this week!


As Insurgent wraps up filming at the Serenbe Community, crews have been prepping their next location – downtown Atlanta.

There signs posted along Peachtree St that say filming will be taking place between 6/11 – 6/24 (this includes setting up and tearing down the set but we can assume the shoot will take place over multiple days this coming week).

The sets are actually on top of several rooftops (including one on top of the Peachtree Center) and they are connected by zip lines. On Friday, stunt men and women were seen practicing and testing the zip lines several times.

The Divergent sequel stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q and Mekhi Phifer. The movie is based Veronica Roth’s best selling book series and hits theaters Mar. 20, 2015.

Thanks to those who sent us tips and photos about the shoot. Want to swap more tips with other fans, check out out Insurgent open thread. Have photos to share? Email us at olv@onlocationvacations.com!
